Assisted Living Costs in Salt Lake County

The average monthly cost of assisted living in Salt Lake County is $3,600, which is $400 less than the average paid across the nation ($4,000) but $250 more than the median price in Utah. It also makes Salt Lake County the second most expensive area in the state for assisted living, topped only by Ogden where the monthly average is $3,893. Prices trend downward in St. George ($3,500) and Logan ($2,950) and reach a statewide low in Provo, where seniors pay just $2,898 per month.

Note: Specific senior care cost data for Salt Lake County wasn’t available. Data for the county seat, Salt Lake City, has been used instead. 

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas

Care Cost Comparison

The cost of senior care in Salt Lake County spans a broad range largely due to the degree and skill level of care needed and whether a senior remains at home or moves to a residential facility. Seniors staying at home may opt for adult day health services ($1,067) provided only on weekdays and in a group setting, or in-home services, such as a homemaker ($4,767) or home health aide ($4,671). With these types of care options, seniors have to pay for their own food and household operating bills in addition to the cost of care services.

Assisted living communities ($3,600) and nursing homes ($6,768) are residential care options that provide housing, meals, housekeeping and personal care assistance. Nursing homes are about $2,100 more expensive per month because they offer 24/7 skilled nursing and other specialized services, such as medication management. 

Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Salt Lake County

Medicaid in Utah

Medicaid is the federal and state-funded program that serves the health care needs of low-income Americans across the country. In Utah, the program is managed by the Department of Health’s Division of Medicaid and primarily covers pregnant women, families with young children, adults who are blind or disabled and senior citizens. The program provides a wide range of health care benefits to those who qualify, such as:

  • Physician and specialist services
  • Hospitalization and emergency treatment
  • X-rays and laboratory tests
  • Occupational and physical therapy
  • Prescription medications
  • In-home care
  • Institutional nursing home care
  • Emergency and nonemergency medical transportation

Qualifying for Utah Medicaid for Long-Term Care

Salt Lake County residents can qualify for Medicaid long-term care if they:

  • Are aged 65 or older, or
  • Blind or disabled and aged 64 or younger, and
  • Have $2,000 or less in countable assets as an individual or $4,000 in combined countable assets as a married couple applying together

Utah Medicaid doesn’t cap income for those who need nursing home care, but it does require that an applicant’s income go toward the cost of their care except for a $45 per month personal needs allowance.

Disregards For Medicaid Eligibility Purposes

Not all assets count toward the eligibility limits. A primary home with equity up to $585,000, household effects, personal belongings, one vehicle, burial plots, irrevocable funeral trusts and a life insurance policy with a face value of up to $1,500 are excluded.

If only one spouse of a married couple applies for coverage, the non-applicant’s income isn’t counted and they also may receive up to $3,160.50 of the applicant’s monthly income along with up to $126,420 of the couple’s joint assets. These living and resource allowances are mandated by federal law to prevent spousal impoverishment.

Salt Lake County seniors can apply for Utah Medicaid online, or contact the Department of Workforce Services at (866) 435-7414 for more information or help completing an application.

Aging Waiver Program

Utah Medicaid’s Aging waiver covers in-home and community-based care services to help seniors aged 65 or older avoid premature nursing home admission. To qualify, applicants must be financially eligible for Medicaid and assessed as needing the level of care provided in a nursing home.

Program enrollees receive case management and additional support services based on their needs. Provided services may include:

  • Transitional assistance to move back to the community
  • Companion services
  • Personal emergency response systems
  • Medication reminders
  • Personal budget assistance
  • Durable medical equipment
  • Nonmedical transportation

The AW isn’t an entitlement program of Utah Medicaid. Participation is capped, so eligible seniors may be placed on a waiting list until a spot becomes available.

To learn more about the Aging waiver or apply, seniors can contact Salt Lake County Aging and Adult Services at (385) 468-3200.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Aid and Attendance Benefits and Housebound Allowance

Senior veterans and surviving spouses currently receiving a non-disability VA pension who have increased care needs and costs may be eligible for additional monthly benefits through either the Aid and Attendance or Housebound program.

To qualify for one of these two benefits, applicants must have a maximum yearly income of $22,577 and be honorably discharged with a minimum 90-day active duty service record that includes one or more days during wartime. Applicants must also meet program-specific criteria:

For the Housebound allowance, applicants must have a VA disability rating of 100% and be primarily confined to their residence.

For Aid and Attendance benefits, applicants must suffer from one or more of these conditions:

  • Have severe vision loss that can’t be improved with corrective lenses
  • Be primarily bedridden due to chronic illness or disability
  • Have a mental or physical impairment that requires nursing home care
  • Be unable to perform daily living activities without help from a caregiver

For more information about the A&A or Housebound program or to receive help filing an application for either benefit, Salt Lake County seniors can contact the Utah Department of Veterans Affairs at (801) 326-2372.

Optional State Supplement

Salt Lake County seniors and disabled adults who meet the eligibility requirements for federal Supplemental Security Income benefits may be entitled to a small monthly cash payment from the state of Utah. The qualification standards for Utah’s Optional State Supplement are the same as those for SSI:

  • A monthly income no greater than $771 for single applicants or $1,157 for married couples
  • Assets of $2,000 or less for single applicants or $3,000 or less for couples

To apply for SSI and state OSS benefits, Utah seniors can contact the Social Security Administration at (800) 771-1213. 

Assisted Living Bridge Loan

Seniors who are feeling a temporary cash crunch from the costs associated with moving to assisted living may apply for a bridge loan from Elderlife Financial. These loans are structured as an interest-only line of credit with a maximum 12-month term.

There’s no cost to apply and no early payoff penalty, so seniors waiting for assets to sell or benefits to begin can use the loan to cover move-in fees, monthly rent and care expenses and then pay off the balance once long-term funding is in place. The approval process often only takes a day or two, and Elderlife can set up convenient direct payments to a chosen facility on the borrower’s behalf.

Salt Lake County seniors can contact Elderlife Financial Services at (888) 228-4500 to learn more or complete an online application.

Assisted Living Resources in Salt Lake County

Senior Centers

Salt Lake County is home to 19 senior centers that offer a diverse range of programs, activities and services to enrich the lives of adults aged 60 and over. Seniors can visit the center nearest to their home to socialize with friends over a nutritious lunch, stay fit with exercise classes, or play bingo, chess or card and board games.

Each center has unique offerings that may include common-interest clubs, wellness screenings, health fairs, seminars on pertinent topics, art, craft and music activities and special events. County residents can call (385) 468-3080 to learn more or locate the most convenient center.

Veterans Services

Salt Lake County veterans can contact the Utah Department of Veterans Affairs to access benefits, including housing or financial assistance and no-cost transportation to medical appointments. Staff at the DVA can also help veterans and their survivors apply for state and VA benefits and pensions.

For veterans who qualify, the VA Salt Lake City Health Care System provides comprehensive medical services, including primary and specialist care. Shared bonds and camaraderie can be found at the county’s American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars posts.
