Assisted Living Costs in Arlington

Although the average monthly cost for assisted living in Texas ($3,795) is about $200 less than the national average according to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care Survey, assisted living expenses in Arlington actually come in nearly $400 over the national average. Nearby cities such as Tyler ($3,800), Waco ($3,695) and Abilene ($3,868) fall much closer to the state average, while other local cities, including Longview ($3,100) and Wichita Falls ($3,312) have significantly lower monthly costs. 

These costs are based on data for the Dallas area, which includes Arlington.

Care Cost Comparison

While costs of senior services tend to vary widely by type, expenses for most care services in Arlington tend to cluster around the midrange. A semiprivate room in a nursing home has the highest average monthly cost at $5,064, and only adult day health is significantly lower in cost than the other services, at $1,408 per month. Individuals who are looking into senior services should factor in living expenses such as rent, meals and upkeep when comparing the costs of in-home services to residential facilities as these costs are often incorporated into assisted living expenses.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Arlington

Medicaid in Texas

Seniors receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or who are in need of long-term care may qualify to receive medical benefits through Texas Medicaid or Medicaid buy-in programs. Benefits include coverage for doctor’s visits, hospital care, prescription drugs, lab work and X-rays, as well as vision, hearing and dental care. Most Texas Medicaid services are delivered through managed care organizations.

Individuals receiving SSI are eligible for the state’s Medicaid program. Medicaid may even help qualified individuals pay for care received up to three months prior to the start of SSI. For more information, interested individuals can visit YourTexasBenefits.

Medicaid for long-term care is available to low-income Texas residents over the age of 65 who demonstrate the need for 30 or more days of nonstop, long-term care. In order to qualify, applicants must not own or be paying off items over a designated value. This does not include houses, vehicles, burial funds and some types of life insurance. To determine if your income and assets fall within the acceptable range, visit the state’s screening tool.

The state’s Medicaid buy-in program was designed to provide medical coverage for working individuals who have physical, mental, intellectual or developmental disabilities. Applicants must not live full time in a nursing facility, state hospital or a care home for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Qualified applicants can buy into Medicaid services for a monthly cost.

For further information, and to apply, potential applicants can visit YourTexasBenefits.com.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

The Texas Community Care for the Aged/Disabled (CCAD) program

Overseen by Texas Health and Human Services, the CCAD program allows low-income seniors at risk of nursing home placement to receive personal services at home or in an assisted living residence. It also covers services, such as personal emergency response systems, which reduce the need for constant individualized care. Other available services include consumer-managed personal attendant services, which allows an individual to choose their own caregiver, even paying family members to care for them. Residential care is offered to individuals already residing in assisted living facilities.

While benefits vary depending on an individual’s living arrangement, certain standard eligibility requirements apply. Applicants must be legal Texas residents with income not exceeding three times the Supplemental Security Income payment. Assets must not exceed $5,000 for individuals and $6,000 for couples, although this amount may vary depending on the benefit sought. Applicants should also not be eligible for identical services through Medicaid programs.

Seniors should contact their local Aging and Disability Resource Center for further information and to apply.

VA Aid and Attendance Program

Eligible veterans and surviving spouses in need of financial aid for assisted living can seek assistance through the VA Aid and Attendance Program. In order to qualify, applicants must be over 65 and require help with activities of daily living. Program funding is designed to offset the costs of assisted living.

Application to the program can be confusing since the eligibility requirements are complex and factor in unreimbursed medical expenses. Potential applicants should visit their local VA benefits office for further information or to apply.

Assisted Living Bridge Loans

Individuals or families in need of short-term funding for assisted living may want to consider a bridge loan, which can fund up to 12 months of payments. While interest can be high on bridge loans, this program may be ideal for seniors awaiting benefit approval or funds from a home sale. Bridge loans can also cover the initial expenses of assisted living, including move-in costs. 

Because a single loan can have multiple co-borrowers, the importance of individual creditworthiness diminishes, improving chances of approval. Since family members generally apply for bridge loans rather than the senior himself, the age and health of the service recipient don’t impact the odds of approval. Lenders generally require specifics about the anticipated source of permanent funding.

Bridge loans can be disbursed as a lump sum or as a line of credit. Once a loan application is submitted, the approval time is often very fast. For further information on assisted living bridge loans, contact Elderlife Financial Services.
