I visited this facility

Legacy House of Ogden was nice and it was closer to home, but it was too expensive for me, and I can't cook there. The staff was very outgoing and very cordial. When we walked down the hallways when they were showing us things, the staff said "hello" and "how are you?" with a nice smile. It wasn't forced, they were genuinely happy to see somebody. They stopped whatever they were doing, and they didn't seem irritated in any way. They were very happy to see us. The rooms were of average size, and they were good. It wasn't just one room, it had a bedroom, a living room, and a kitchen. A combination type of thing and to me, it was very nice. It was sunny, well-lit, and it was really a nice place.

My mother-in-law couldn't eat the food at The Harrison Regent. The menu and the food selection went downhill. I had talked to the manager about it because the quality of the food was really bad. The new manager was nice, but they don't really care about how the residents feel. All they care is about their money. Everything was premade. The chef and a lot of their management people left. The place was fine, but their annual increase in rent was absolutely out of control. She was happy with their activities. They had a bell choir, their senior citizens performed in other places, and she enjoyed the gym and the opportunity to work out.

Legacy House of Ogden was very nice and clean. Since my mother wanted a specific room-size, the staff showed us a room that was under renovation. They were putting in marble countertops and updating things, but my mom thought it was too small. We were shown their library, an exercise room, and the meal areas, which were very nice. They said that they serve the food restaurant style. The room we saw was a large 1-bedroom, and we went to see a furnished 1-bedroom apartment also. My mother's furniture would fit in there. It was a very nice 1-bedroom. I really like the staff member, Diana, who gave us the tour.

The people at Legacy House of Ogden were great, very nice, very accommodating, and very upfront with everything. The facility was really nice. They allowed my mother to take an exercise class while she was there. The staff was very helpful, very nice, very kind, and very patient. They had the full-service food cafeteria.

The staff at The Harrison Regent was really helpful, took their time, showed us around, and answered questions. It's a little older, and it could be updated a little bit. We liked the more independent living aspect of it. They had exercises and outdoor group activities, and they take them to stores. My mother said the food was good.

My mother is now at The Gardens. It is really nice, and it has done her a world of good. Her room is kept clean, and it looks really good. They have crafts every day, ice cream day, and once a month they do a big activity for the family. They are all very happy. They have some cool activities going on. They have a big living room in the front, a dining room in the front of the building and another dining room at the other end of the building and a small sitting room in the middle.

We chose The Harrison Regent for our grandma, and it's great. She really likes it and she's doing well. The place is very clean, the meals are really good and the people are all very friendly. Overall, it just seems like a good atmosphere. They have all sorts of different activities. They get together and watch basketball games, they do crafts, and they have exercise class and so on. They provide three meals daily and also snacks. They do housekeeping service once a week, provide cable and internet, access to the library and a computer. The staff is very helpful and attentive. One of the things that impressed me was, that the lady who gave me the tour knew everybody by name and their individual situation. I have eaten a few meals there and I would definitely rate them a 5 on that. We went to other places, and this one seems to be reasonably priced.

The Harrison Regent is an older place, but very nice and beautifully kept. The rooms were lovely but they did not have kitchen facilities. So it would not be an ideal palce for someone who still likes to do a little cooking. The food is provided and the facilities are very nice and lovely. They have transportation, a lovely library, and entertainment that comes in occasionally. It's a good location with beautiful surroundings. They were very accommodating and they showed us everything.

Care Cost Comparison

The average cost of care depends on the type of care required, and in Ogden and many other cities like it, the difference in costs between different types of care is substantial. In Ogden, the average monthly cost of nursing home care is nearly $3,000 greater than that of assisted living. While the cost of home care is similar to assisted living costs, seniors who choose to continue living at home need to consider the additional expenses that are incurred as a homeowner or renter, such as rent/mortgage payments, utilities and groceries. These costs are typically included in the price of assisted living.  Cost of Homemaker/Home Health Aide Comparison Chart

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Ogden

Medicaid in Utah

Medicaid in Utah is available to the state’s most vulnerable residents with low incomes including seniors, disabled individuals, children and pregnant woman. Medicaid provides a variety of programs and services to these individuals, including financial assistance and access to medical and supportive care, prescription medications and equipment.

Seniors residing in an assisted living facility can access financial assistance from Medicaid under one of two waiver programs: the Aging Waiver and the New Choices Waiver. To be eligible for these waivers in Utah, seniors must be 65 years of age or older and complete a comprehensive assessment to determine the level of care they need. Financial requirements stipulate that individual applicants may not have an income that exceeds $12,490 annually and assets valued at more than $2,000, while couples may not have a combined annual income that exceeds $16,910 and assets valued at more than $3,000. 

Aging Waiver

Utah’s Aging Waiver operates under the state’s Medicaid Managed Care Program. It’s designed to help seniors retain some of their independence when they are at risk of moving into a nursing care facility. Seniors participating in this waiver program may be residing at home or in an assisted living facility. The program covers the cost of long-term care as well as daily nurse visits, senior companions, respite care, nonemergency transportation and other necessary health care expenses. 

Seniors can apply for this waiver by calling the Division of Aging and Adult Services at (801) 538-3910.

New Choices Waiver Program

The New Choices Waiver is a separate part of the state’s Medicaid Managed Care Program. It helps seniors who are residing in nursing care homes to transition back into an assisted living facility when their need for care has lessened. The program provides seniors with financial help with the cost of care as well as transitional counseling services. It came into existence to help reduce the level of stress on the Medicaid system, which is largely the result of the high cost of nursing care. 

In addition to the Medicaid state plan requirements mentioned previously, seniors must reside in an approved nursing home to participate in the New Choices Waiver, and they must be able to safely move back into their community or an assisted living facility. 

To apply for this program or to learn more about the application process, seniors can contact (800) 662-9651.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Optional State Supplement

As in many states, Utah offers an optional state supplement (OSS). The OSS is a cash benefit that’s provided to Supplemental Security Income recipients with exceptionally low incomes. The benefit is exclusive to those who reside in long-term care facilities. Payments are determined by the senior’s income. Individual OSS applicants must not own assets valued at more than $2,000, and couples may not own assets valued at more than $3,000. 

To apply for the OSS benefit, seniors can call their local Social Security Administration office at (800) 772-1213.

Long-Term Care Insurance

Seniors who have purchased long-term care insurance may be eligible to have their insurance provider pay for the cost of assisted living. In most cases, policyholders will need to pay a deductible annually before their insurance company will pay for their care. Generally, long-term care insurance policies must be purchased before an individual’s health begins declining and before the need for long-term care exists. 

Premiums, deductibles and policy terms vary depending on the insurance provider and the plan. Insurance companies usually consider an individual’s age and health history when determining rates and eligibility. 

Elderlife Bridge Loan

Elderlife Financial Services offers seniors an alternative way to pay for long-term care when they’re unable to obtain financial assistance from Medicaid or other government assistance programs. Elder bridge loans are issued to long-term care facilities, and the senior is responsible for repaying the loan in full. Payments are typically made monthly, and the loans have flexible terms and low interest rates. 

While applicants must meet credit and income requirements, those who are unable to obtain approval on their own can include up to six cosigners on their application, which can increase the likelihood of approval and reduce monthly payments.
