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

Rehab was good, we loved the wonderful man that got my mom up and going. BUT we were taken back by our experiences that were shocking some days. The first few days, my mom was so upset and wanted to go home. Aids offered help but never came back--Mom was told she needed help going to the bathroom, hard to get help, left mom on toilet one hour..Mom has lymphoma and gout. She pulled the emergency button six times, NOTHING. She banged on the wall. At one point she was in a lot of pain and tried and tried to move for relief. She about toppled over twice. I KNOW FOR A FACT workers ignored her light midday. --someone came in to give mom meds and made sure we understood she was in a hurry, brought in a cup of pudding that had already been used. I only saw one spoon and she double dipped, did she for others?? Covid?? Lied about Medicare-pay them back if discharged mom early. Nope -three days rule with Medicare. She said it can get nasty- well lying is nasty. I could go on but limit

I visited The Seville in Orem. What I liked most was the openness. It was a little smaller so it is very easy to get around. I thought the beauty shop was very cute and I really liked it. I love the laundry facility, I thought it is very spacious and well set-up. Some activities were going on around and people seemed to be enjoying themselves. I really just like it. I do not even have anything negative about it. I cannot think of anything to say against it because it was what I wanted. The staff, Josh, did a great job. He was very thorough: made sure we had everything answered, made follow-up calls, and he was excellent.

I thought that Legacy Village of Provo looked nice, it's just more money than we'd be able to spend. The people that I talked to were very nice and pleasant. They showed me a couple of studios, then I saw the eating area and things like that, and they were very clean. I saw their game or puzzle room; they showed me a sitting room, library, the lunchroom , and the meeting room as well. It looked really clean and well-maintained; they were cleaning the carpets when we were there.

Legacy Village of Provo was very nice. It had all the amenities that I need, and all the activities that I would enjoy. Their dining hall looked very good, too. Their apartment is just a little smaller than what I have right now, but it would work and shouldn't be a problem. The price was also good, and they treated me well. The staff was only able to show me the one-bedroom. I was more interested in the two-bedroom, but it was still really nice. They have movies, people who come in to perform, bingo, a game time that they organized, and a pool table. Their location is kind of perfect for where I would want to be, because it's right down from that college. I can go up to the canyons and down to the river to fish.

We're putting mom in Bel Aire Senior Living today. They're very nice, and I really like it. The price range is something we can afford, and they're really working with me and my mom. She had to go on hospice, and they arranged to have it taken care of. Last Friday, I got to see the apartments, and they were clean and nice. The staff was probably one of the nicest people I've ever worked with, which is a relief when you're dealing with a lot of stress and worrying about what you’re going to do with your parent. They were just so understanding. They gave good suggestions on what to do, and they were just excellent and really, really nice people. My mom would be in the assisted living. Her memory is just fine, she just has really bad health. We haven't had any food, and I haven't even looked at the menu. All I know is that my mom didn't like all of the food in the rehabs and hospitals and all the places she's been. They said she can kind of pick what she wants. She can just have sandwiches and that's the way she eats. She doesn't need meat and all that, and it's great that she can pick what she wants. They have a lot of activities, but she hasn't had any yet because we haven't moved her in. The halls were wide, so that if she would have to be in a wheelchair, there's plenty of room for somebody to push her around in it. The sitting area in the entrance was really, really cute and really nice inside. It was clean, real bright and cheerful. Older people would like to sit there and look out the window. It wasn't dark and dingy. I like that this place is kind of in a residential area because my mom especially likes to look out her window and see what's going on. She will be able to see people walking around by their homes. I just think it's overall really a good fit for my mom.

I have chosen Bel Aire Senior Living for my dad. He is going to be evaluated tomorrow, and he'll move in this month. It was a very nice place. The apartments were adequate and nice. He is getting the medium sized unit that has a nice bathroom and bedroom. The staff members were very nice. The residents were very nice and very friendly. I didn't see a courtyard nor an exercise room. I forgot to ask them, but he is not going to need it anyway.

We really appreciated the wonderful staff and the help they gave to our father when he stayed in the Independent living section of Summerfield (in 2019). The apartment was beautiful and spacious. The people were so friendly—both the staff and the residents. The food they served was delicious, and when Bob got sick for a while, they were very considerate about bringing meals to his room. Though Bob opted to live with us after he could no longer keep up the independent life, he would never mind going back there, even on the dependent-living side.

Beehive Homes of Payson is very nice. They seem to take real good care of my friend's father. His room is nice and they've got a nice dining area. One of the residents came and met us right at the door and told us how nice it was there. The facility is very clean. The band players were just finishing up at that time. I've only been there a few times, but it's always been nice, and they've always been friendly.

My mother has moved into Courtyard at Jamestown Assisted Living. The staff is friendly. They showed us different room layouts, and we also met some of the residents. They have laundry facilities on each floor, a library, an activity room, a computer area, a beauty salon, and two duck ponds. She participated in a lot of activities. We ended up getting a pretty good sized studio for her with a large walk-in closet.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Utah County

Medicaid in Utah

Medicaid provides health insurance to vulnerable individuals, including low-income families, pregnant women, disabled persons and senior citizens. Medicaid covers the cost of a range of medical expenses, including physician care, dental care, optician services and prescription medications. Assisted living services are covered under waiver programs that amend the standard state plan. 

To qualify for Medicaid, senior Utah residents must be:

  • Age 65 or older 
  • Limited to an income of $1,041 per month and $2,000 in countable assets (single person)
  • Limited to an income of $1,372 per month and $3,000 in countable assets (married couple) 

Exempt assets include the applicant’s home, provided they or their spouse continue to live in it, as well as household furnishings and a single vehicle.

Seniors can apply for Medicaid online or call (866) 435-7414 for assistance. 

Aging Waiver

Utah’s Aging waiver provides assistance to elderly individuals who require a nursing level of care, yet wish to delay moving to a nursing home. It covers services that can help seniors remain in their home or assisted living facilities, such as nurse visits, housekeeping, personal care, specialized medical equipment and transportation. 

To qualify, applicants must be 65 years of age or older and meet the financial requirements of the state Medicaid plan. All applicants are also required to undergo a full assessment to determine their care needs. 

To apply for this waiver, seniors can contact the Division of Aging and Adult Services at (801) 538-3910.

New Choices Waiver Program

The New Choices waiver is available to seniors who are transitioning from a nursing home back into the community. This program pays for various services, including assisted living, home care, transitional counseling, transportation and physical and occupational therapy. The program was created to encourage seniors to consider receiving a lower level of care within the community provided it doesn’t hinder their health or quality of life. 

To qualify for this waiver, seniors must be at least 65 years of age and currently receive assisted living or nursing home care. Financial requirements for this program are slightly more generous than the state plan. Applicants are permitted to earn up to $2,313 per month. Asset limitations are the same as for the state Medicaid plan. 

To apply, or to find out more details about this program, seniors can contact (800) 662-9651. 

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Optional State Supplement

Utah’s Optional State Supplement (OSS) is available to low-income senior citizens who require additional help beyond what Medicaid can provide. The OSS is a cash benefit that’s paid out on a monthly basis. In most cases, seniors are expected to use the benefit to pay for the cost of room and board in long-term care facilities. 

To be eligible for the OSS, seniors must be receiving Supplemental Security Income and aged 65 years or older. Individual applicants are restricted to $2,000 in countable assets, and married couples are restricted to $3,000. 

To apply, seniors can contact the Social Security Administration at (800) 771-1213. 

Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension Benefit

The Aid and Attendance benefit may provide financial assistance with the cost of long-term care to veterans and their spouses provided they meet the program’s eligibility guidelines. For those who qualify, it covers the cost of care in assisted living facilities, as well as home care or nursing home care. The benefit is paid in cash to the recipient each month in addition to their pension.

To qualify, the applicant must be a U.S. veteran or the spouse of one and fall under one of the following categories: 

  • Have corrected eyesight in both eyes; vision must be 5/200 or worse 
  • Require assistance with activities of daily living
  • Be bedridden as the result of a chronic illness or disability 
  • Live with a concentric contraction to five or fewer degrees of their visual field

Those who already receive VA disability benefits don’t qualify for the Aid and Attendance benefit.
