Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
The wide range of costs for senior care is based largely on the type of care provided, the location and what is included. In Bellevue, nursing home care is nearly double the cost of assisted living, while homemaker and home health aide services cost about $1,000 more a month than assisted living. It’s important to note that these figures for in-home services don’t include additional expenses associated with maintaining a home, such as utilities, taxes, insurance and upkeep. These costs are normally included with residential care for seniors.

Bellevue seniors aged 65 and older may qualify for Classic Medicaid coverage under Washington Apple Health, the state Medicare program. There are a number of coverage options available for seniors who are Medicare-eligible, including the Apple Health Medicare Savings Program, which provides individuals with assistance to pay Medicare premiums, coinsurance charges, co-payments and deductibles.
Seniors aged 65 and older who have a monthly income of $1,396 or less may qualify for up to $16,752 in coverage if they meet means testing. This includes a retroactive five-year audit of assets prior to the date of their Medicaid application to prevent fraudulent claims.
Seniors may also qualify for Apple Health Long-Term Care, which includes coverage for a range of long-term care services including nursing home care for applicants who require placement in a nursing home. Apple Health Long-Term Care also includes coverage for home-based and assisted living services for applicants who need help with two or more activities of daily living, such as grooming, dressing and light meal preparation.
Long-term care coverage through Medicaid in Washington falls under three programs. The income limit for both the Institutional/Nursing Home Medicaid program and the Medicaid Waivers/Home and Community-Based Services is $2,313 per month for a single applicant and $4,626 for a married couple when both spouses are applying. The third long-term care coverage program, for regular Medicaid applicants who are aged, blind or disabled, has income limits of $771 per month for singles and $1,157 for married couples.

Assisted Living Bridge Loans and Reverse Mortgages
Bridge loans provide up to 12 months of payments for seniors who require short-term assistance paying for assisted living. These loans, offered through Elderlife Financial Services, provide seniors with access to either a lump-sum payment or a line of credit that can be paid off once benefits are approved or the senior sells their home.
Reverse mortgages are available for partnered seniors aged 62 or older who own their own home and one partner or spouse needs to move into an assisted living facility. These reverse mortgages allow seniors to access the equity in their home to pay for assisted living while retaining ownership of their residence as long as one spouse continues to live in the home.
To learn more about assisted living bridge loans and reverse mortgages, contact Elderlife Financial at (888) 228-4500.

Note that for the purposes of this program, disability does not need to be related to military service.
The Housebound pension supplement is available to qualified applicants who have both a VA disability rating of 100 percent and are largely limited to their primary residence as a direct result of their permanent disability.
