I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mother-in-law has moved into Windlands South. It is a wonderful place. Everyone there has been beyond friendly and very helpful to her and to us. I would describe the community as alive and lively. They have lots of different amenities and activities. She played bingo yesterday, they had Easter-egg decorating on Friday, and they had an Easter-egg hunt for Easter. They have a girl on staff whose name is Sarah, and she is the one who organizes everything. They have a newsletter that comes out once a week that tells them all of their options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as what's going on throughout the week. It also has little articles in it about how to meditate and how to become involved. They even have involvement competitions where the more you participate, the more times you are entered to become a participant winner. In other words, they reward people for being involved. They made a big push to get everybody vaccinated, and they had a big vaccination day. They have on-site transportation if they need to go to the doctor, shopping, or wherever; they can take them anytime they want to go. They have scheduled transportation, and they have outdoor outings. I have been very impressed. They also have on-site home healthcare. If they don't have their own doctor, they can use the doctor there who will come and see them. They have all kinds of programs that will come in to help them get medication, physical therapy, or what have you. They also have a little workout room. The building is old, and there are certain things that you could see that could use a little touch, but my mother-in-law has just been made to feel very welcome. She hasn't had a chance to go to activities, but the offerings seem to be very varied in what they offer. They are bringing her food to her room, which is great, and they're doing that because of COVID. You can sign up to go down to the lobby if you're vaccinated. Her only complaint has been that they don't have iced tea. They have a wide array of juices but no iced tea, and she said that they don't give you enough, so I guess she would like larger quantities.

We hired Home Instead Senior Care for my mother. The caregivers have been great, but we've had some consistency problems. The caregivers we have regularly have been great, they help with bathing, food prep, washing linens and clothes, and some small housekeeping. The morning caregiver is great, but we have inconsistencies with the weekend person, and we prefer a older personnel.

We used Home Instead Senior Care, but we let them go about 3 weeks ago. They were good, they were fine, but we didn't want them there with this covid going on. My mother liked the caregiver, she was very professional. I had no problem with the agency.

Home Instead Senior Care is good about getting the right person for you. I have been using them for two years now. The caregiver makes up the bed and waters my flowers. I am pleased with them. They're good.

We have hired Home Instead for my father. I wish that one person can come out more often and not so many different person every time. That's the only problem I have with it. I would like to have the same person come out every time. Nevertheless, they do excellent. They don't help him with his medication; I do that. They don't bathe him; I do that. I make it easy for them; however, they always take it upon themselves to clean up a little bit. They go above and beyond. My father is very comfortable with almost anybody we put him with. We haven't used them that long at all but maybe for a few months.

We're using Home Instead Senior Care for our father. They are helping him to engage in different things that will pique his curiosity. They're doing meal prep, but they're also including him in it. They're getting out of the house to get ingredients for the meal, they do exercises together, they talk, she does some of his laundry, and changes his bed and his linens. The agency is a three out of five and the employee is a four out of five. The caregiver is superb, well rounded, and lovable. It's as if my father is her loved one.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I’m living at Morningside of Belmont. It’s very nice, the food is excellent, I really enjoy the location, and it’s more than adequate. They go out to lunch about twice a week, and a choir from Belmont sings a couple of times a week. The staff is excellent, very nice, most of them know my name, and recognize me. I’m very pleased with the staff.

I visited this facility

The apartments at Windlands South (Holiday Retirement) was really nice. The only thing I didn't quite like about it, I guess, was the kitchen. They're small and all the older appliances seemed like they were not even updated a little bit, even though the apartment was nice. They should be more updated with appliances and stuff and then I could call this home. They have bingo, you come downstairs and they can do the different activities. It was nice and clean, they showed me the dining area, and that was so nice. The staff was also very nice, and I noticed that their approach was so nice. It was really nice, and it drew my attention. It's more like I went on vacation and went into a hotel. And when I went in it was so beautiful I had to sit up. And the kitchen? I was just ready to eat.

I visited this facility

Windlands South was nice and a little bit of an older property. The rooms, facility, and people were nice. Had it been in a different location, I may have chosen it. The only negative that I could come up with was the fact that it had many floors and only two elevators. There seemed to be some issues with people moving in because the elevators were occupied with the residents trying to get up and down. Everything else was nice. They seemed to maintain the property well. The apartment was fine and up-to-date. The facility and the dining room were clean. Everybody seemed to be happy and attended. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the facility. It really boils down to location. The contact person who showed me around was very attentive and kind. Our grandmother would have been very happy there had the location been in a different spot.

Care Cost Comparison

In Nashville, the biggest factor influencing the cost of senior care is the type of care that a senior needs. Adult day health care, the most affordable type of care in the city, costs about one-third the price of assisted living care. Homemaker services ($3,621) and home health aides ($3,804) are also significantly less expensive than assisted living care. However, seniors who choose these in-home care options should also consider the other costs associated with remaining in their homes, such as utilities. The most expensive type of senior care in Nashville, nursing home care, costs more than $2,000 more per month than assisted living care. Cost of Homemaker/Home Health Aide Comparison Chart

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Nashville

Medicaid in Tennessee

Medicaid is a government-funded health insurance program that provides health care benefits to eligible people, such as children, pregnant women and senior citizens. Each state operates its own Medicaid program. TennCare, Tennessee’s Medicaid program, covers a variety of health care services, such as doctor visits, home health services, medical supplies, hospital visits and physical therapy.

Seniors may qualify for coverage through TennCare if they meet the program’s residency, citizenship and financial requirements. They must be U.S. citizens or qualified aliens who live in Tennessee. In addition, they must have a low or very low income. In Tennessee, the Medicaid income limit for a single senior is $16,040 per year before taxes. For couples, the income limit is $21,599. Seniors accepted into the TennCare program may need to regularly verify eligibility. 

Seniors can apply for TennCare coverage through TennCare Connect, the state’s online portal. Alternately, seniors can complete a paper application and mail it to:

Health Insurance Marketplace
Dept. of Health and Human Services
465 Industrial Blvd, London, KY 40750

For help applying for TennCare, seniors can visit their local Department of Human Services office or speak to a Health Insurance Marketplace representative by calling (800) 318-2596. Seniors who have a disability can receive in-home assistance when applying for TennCare; to make arrangements call the Area Agency on Aging at (866) 836-6678.

CHOICES in Long-Term Services and Supports Program

Seniors may be eligible to receive assistance from the CHOICES in Long-Term Services and Supports program. This Medicaid waiver program provides support to seniors who qualify for nursing home care but would prefer to receive care in their own homes or in an assisted living facility. This support includes personal care visits, adult day care and assistive technology. This program is not an entitlement, and there is a waiting list.

To be eligible for the CHOICES program, seniors must meet the financial requirements for Medicaid long-term services and supports. These requirements are different from the requirements for general Medicaid coverage. Seniors must have a monthly income that is less than $2,313. Their total assets, excluding their primary residence, must be less than $2,000.

For more information on the CHOICES program, call the Long-Term Services and Supports Help Desk at (877) 224-0219.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Veterans Affairs Aid and Attendance Program

Veterans and survivors who need help paying for assisted living care in Nashville may be eligible for the Veterans Affairs Aid and Attendance program. This program provides an increased monthly VA pension to eligible seniors.

To receive this additional pension benefit, seniors must be eligible for a basic VA pension. They must also need assistance from another person to perform one or more personal tasks, such as bathing or dressing. Seniors who are legally blind or bedridden due to a disability may also qualify.

Seniors who have questions about this pension can call (800) 827-1000 to speak to a representative at the Nashville Regional Benefit Office. They can also visit this office, located at 110 9th Avenue in Nashville, to apply for benefits.

Bridge Loans for Assisted Living

Seniors who need short-term funding to pay for assisted living care may want to consider a bridge loan. These loans are ideal for seniors who are waiting for benefit approval, a home sale or another long-term source of funding. Like a line of credit, seniors can withdraw money as they need it. The funds are sent directly to the assisted living community where the senior lives.

Seniors can apply for a bridge loan by filling out an online application with Elderlife Financial. They can also call (888) 228-4500 to apply over the phone.
