Review by T.T. | Consumer

We toured Brookdale Bellevue. I really liked the place. It was nice, clean, and it's everything you could want except that the location is inconvenient for me personally. It looks more like an institution and is not as homey as the other place we looked at. They have a place where you can go outside and take a walk.

At $4,500 per month, Nashville’s assisted living care is much more expensive than the Tennessee average of $3,920. It’s also significantly more expensive than the nationwide average of $4,000, according to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study. While Nashville offers the priciest assisted living care in the state, the Kingsport Area isn’t far behind at $4,179 per month. In some of Tennessee’s major metropolitan areas, such as Clarksville and Jackson, monthly assisted living care costs are over $1,000 lower than in Nashville.

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.

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. Those who aren’t able to apply in person can submit a written request to the Pension Management Center:

Milwaukee VA Pension Center
Department of Veterans Affairs
Claims Intake Center
Attention: Milwaukee Pension Center
P.O. Box 5192 
Janesville, WI 53547
Fax: 1-844-655-1604

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.
