Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
Care Cost Comparison
Senior care service costs vary widely depending on the number of hours of direct care provided weekly, the medical needs of the senior, and whether room and board are included. In Spokane, nursing home care is more than double the cost of assisted living, while adult day health care services are about one-third the cost of assisted living. Hourly homemaker services for seniors and home health aides cost $5,100, which is $1,100 more than assisted living in Spokane. It’s important to factor in living expenses such as property taxes and insurance, rent, groceries and home maintenance when considering the actual cost of in-home senior services.

Spokane residents aged 19 and over may be eligible for Medicaid, known as Washington Apple Health, if they meet specific financial requirements. Washington seniors aged 65 and older may qualify for Washington Apple Health Classic Medicaid that may include no-cost coverage, assistance with Medicare premiums and help to pay for long-term services and care through Apple Health Long-Term Services.
In order to qualify for Medicaid waivers for home and community-based services or nursing home Apple Health coverage, Washington residents 65 and older must meet income and asset criteria. For single applicants, the income limit is $2,313 and the asset limit is $2,000, while married couples (with both spouses applying) are subject to an income limit of $4,626 and a $3,000 combined asset limit.
For Medicaid eligibility, income includes money from any source, including pension payments, wages, stock dividends, alimony payments, Social Security Disability Income and Social Security Income.
Assets counted on a Medicaid application include cash, bonds and real estate other than the applicants’ primary residence. Excluded items include personal belongings, vehicles, household items, irrevocable burial trusts and the applicants’ primary residence up to a set value. To prevent Medicaid fraud, Washington State has a five-year look-back program to ensure applicants have not disposed of assets in order to meet Medicaid asset limits.

Eligibility requirements for Long-term Care Medicaid in Washington also include:
Long-term Care Medicaid applicants in Washington must make a declaration of interest in an annuity which names the State of Washington the remainder beneficiary.
