Reviews of Assisted Living Facilities in Vancouver

Vancouver Point is a very nice community. I thought that the amenities were kind of average and I wasn't that impressed with the location or the neighborhood. They have a great staff; I thought they were very friendly and helpful. The staff was above average, they were good. They had a nice dining area and a nice dining room, so I'd say that overall it's average.

My Mom moved to the Quarry in mid-December after being in the hospital and no longer able to live independently. She had Parkinson’s so was in the ‘ridge’ at The Quarry, a higher level care section. They tout a specialty for Parkinson’s, but I didn’t see anything other than a general exercise class and a support group supporting it. They didn’t seem knowledgeable about Parkinson’s and I often felt like when they provided updates to me, they were punishing or belittling her when she had odd behaviors related to advanced Parkinson’s, it made me sad. The good: she loved the actual caregivers, Austin in the gym, and thought the food was pretty good, provided you were able to go to the dining room. Food delivered to your room was always cold. She also loved swimming, during the brief time she was able to go to the pool. The bad: it took over a week before we saw a care plan and a month before it was being followed as written. We had difficult communication with our care coordinator, though eventually it got a bit better. We experienced laundry being mixed with other resident laundry, I found her bed remade without any sheets on it, we provided good towels but they only used their Quarry issued towels. Also, keep in mind that housekeeping is once a week, which for some is fine, but should be more frequent in a high care area, obviously, those residents can’t do things themselves. I went every other day to visit and there was only about a month where things went smoothly. After the first month, things got better, then when her health/Parkinson’s got worse, so did the care. When she needed help with showering, toileting, transport, they said her care needs were too much, and they didn’t have available rooms in the enhanced care unit. I went to other facilities to look for a place to move her to. They mentioned charging her for a 30 day notice if she moved, really? They couldn’t meet her needs and were requiring a private caregiver in her room, that is about $700 per day! All of a sudden, they had a room come available the first of April, unfortunately, she died a few days later. The Quarry loves their independent living residents, but those that require more care, not so much. Look at the Facebook posts, activities are focused on independent living and employees, not the residents with higher level of needs. I was paying for her care,not parties! 3 caregivers for 29 residents was not adequate. Call buttons often weren’t answered for 30 minutes, but they’ll tell you their average is 5 minutes. If your loved one requires a high level of care, this is NOT the place, look at a smaller place, the bells and whistles mean nothing if there isn’t good care when our loved ones need it most. Also, if you have a family member there, make sure someone is available to check on them regularly - I can’t imagine how it would have looked if I wasn’t a frequent visitor. I had to do laundry, wash dishes, clean the toilet, brush Mom’s hair, cut her nails, and make sure she was decently dressed EVERY time I visited, none of these are things they worry about. Mom died on April 7th. I am very happy to be done with The Quarry.

Kamlu Retirement Inn-Vancouver's food is really good. The place is older but clean and nice. The staff is super cool, nice, and helpful. My dad is not really participating in activities but there are plenty, like their own bus for tours, poker nights, Scrabble nights, game nights, and Bible study.

It is my favorite so far. It's not as big as some of the other ones, but they allowed dogs and had a swimming pool and a salad bar. The library was really nice. The woman during the tour was very helpful. They had a walking path that goes around the property. I saw one room and a bunch of layouts that I liked. The place had a lot of charm.

I have had my parents there for just under a year. I have a camera inside to see first hand what care we get. Sadly after many complaints the care remains poor at best. The caregivers are nice but time spent with parents during a 5 day review last week was 6 minutes 34 secs a day. Every day but one they did not accomplish items require by the service agreement. Which is a contract to provide services. They cost me $500 per hour for this lack of care based on what I pay and how much time they provide. I am forced to hire private caregivers to provide the care they need. DON'T use BONAVENTURE! You won't get your moneys worth. It's a corporate issue to only have minimal number of staff. So caution at all facilities. That said, staff are great, just to few of them and they don't have time to provide proper care.

Van Mall was not too bad, except the facility was a little older. They have a beauty salon. The rooms are a little bit smaller than I expected, and they're old too. I noticed the other people there seemed much older than me. The person who showed us around was really great. I really appreciated the way she presented the whole thing and she was really friendly. The dining facility seemed OK, but we didn't have a meal there. The activities seemed fine, except I need a little bit more challenging physical activities. The TV room and movie room were OK, but Wi-Fi was not available, and I depend quite a bit on Wi-Fi. Installing my own Wi-Fi would be too much trouble, but they are planning to put one in.

I liked Pacifica Senior Living in Vancouver above the other places we've visited. It's a small place, so it's more intimate, and the key structure is more predictable. They don't have a memory care unit, but the level of care could change based on the needs of the resident. They just have less programs for the residents. The person that took us around was friendly, knew her stuff, and seemed genuinely enthused about the place. They're in the middle of some remodeling, but even so, everything seemed well cared for. We saw three different types of rooms, a 1-bedroom and a larger 2-bedroom. The common areas were really nice, and you don't have to walk far to get to the elevator.

We visited Brookdale Fisher's Landing, which is an older community. The people are friendly and the residents seemed happy, but it's a bit run-down and has a little smell to it. The rooms are bigger compared to the other places we saw.

We weren't impressed with Cascade Inn. The mood of the place seemed more nursing home-like compared to assisted living. They have a lot of veterans, but the people didn't seem very happy. The place was a bit run-down, but the staff members were nice. The location was great but the grounds didn't look that great. It's a little cheaper in price compared to the other senior places.

Care Cost Comparison
Senior care expenses in Vancouver vary based on whether the services involve in-home care or around-the-clock care at a facility. Adult day health care averages $2,167 per month, which makes it one of the most budget-friendly options for seniors in the area. Home health aides cost approximately $5,339 per month, which is roughly $500 higher than the monthly median for assisted living facilities. Nursing home care creates the highest expenses for Vancouver residents, with semiprivate rooms and private rooms each averaging more than $9,000 per month. However, a nursing home may cost less than aging at home with help from health aides. Caretakers for seniors who currently live at home may want to compare the cost of rent, utilities and groceries with the amenities offered by a Vancouver nursing home.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Vancouver
Medicaid in Washington
Washington Apple Health, the state’s Medicaid program, helps reduce the cost of assisted living facilities and home health care for qualifying low-income seniors. Seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) must have a monthly income of $771 or lower to qualify for Medicaid coverage. To apply for Medicaid, elderly residents can visit the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, apply over the phone by calling 1-800-871-9275, fax an application to 1-877-635-8305 or complete an online application at WashingtonConnection.org.
Some Medicare recipients also qualify for Medicaid. When seniors participate in both programs, Medicaid may help cover the cost of Medicare premiums as well as other long-term services. Monthly income limits for Medicaid recipients who also receive Medicare coverage range from $1,041 to $2,818. These limits vary and depend on whether seniors are single or married as well as the level of coverage applicants desire.
Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living
Medicaid Personal Choice Program
Elderly Medicaid recipients can apply for the Medicaid Personal Care (MPC) program. This program gives seniors the flexibility to receive in-home assistance or reside at an assisted living facility. Seniors who need help with hygiene-related tasks such as bathing or using the bathroom can remain at home and select their preferred caregiver. This may be a medical professional, friend or family member.
Medicaid recipients can apply for the MPC program by contacting their Medicaid caseworker or eligibility specialist.
Community First Choice Option
The Community First Choice Option (CFCO) is another Medicaid program that provides benefits for seniors who need institutional-level care. The CFCO program helps cover personal care assistance, medication assistance and assistive technology for participants who wish to delay or avoid nursing home residency. Seniors can remain in their own homes, stay with family members or live in an assisted living facility. As with the MPC program, seniors can choose their own caretakers.
Enrollment is not automatic for qualifying seniors. Seniors must contact their local Medicaid office and request to participate in this program. In additional to annual income limits, current resources are typically capped at $2,000 for individuals and $3,000 for married couples.
Washington Medicaid COPES (Community Options Program Entry System)
Qualifying seniors can receive supportive services from the Washington Medicaid COPES(Community Options Program Entry System) waiver. In-home services, such as meal delivery and home health care are available. Seniors can also receive benefits at an assisted living facility.
The Washington Medicaid COPES program differs from the CFCO and MPC programs by implementing a cap on recipients. A senior may meet the eligibility requirements for COPES yet still not receive services due to the cap. This program is also available for disabled Washington residents who are 18 to 64 years old.
