Why Is Assisted Living for Seniors So Expensive?

Cost can be one of the top deciding factors when choosing where to live at any age. This doesn’t change for seniors who need a little more help at home. When your senior loved one is finding it hard to live on their own and now requires daily assistance for tasks that used to be easy for them, it may be time to consider assisted living opportunities in your area.

Though Phoenix assisted living costs can be daunting at first glance, there are wonderful local options that are both high quality and economical. BridgeWater Assisted Living is an affordable community that offers top-notch assisted living benefits at an affordable price for all income levels.

Upscale Amenities and Services at an Affordable Price

Peace of mind comes with knowing your senior loved one is being well cared for and is happy in their daily life. The caring staff at BridgeWater Assisted Living helps ensure residents have access to the tools that allow them to do the things they enjoy which makes for a meaningful and enriching life for each resident.

With on-site wellness and therapy centers, it’s easy to stay physically fit and work with physical or occupational therapists without having to travel. We serve three chef-prepared meals every day of the week so residents can meet up in the community dining room to share a meal and a laugh. Holiday meals are prepared to celebrate special occasions, and happy hours are provided for those who enjoy some snacks and socializing with friends and family.

Daily activities are available for all who want to learn a new craft or enjoy honing a seasoned skill. Housekeeping services are provided, as well as transportation to medical appointments, shopping trips, and more.

Low or Fixed Income

BridgeWater Assisted Living offers financial services to help aid those who may not be able to afford the cost of assisted living based on earned income. BridgeWater communities also keep their apartment and care rates extremely low to help ensure those who need help can receive it without losing access to the upscale amenities offered. There are also no community fees or deposits required.

If you earn less than $2,420 per month and require daily assistance at home, you may qualify for financial assistance. BridgeWater offers each applicant access to a community benefits advocate to help guide you through the financial assistance process so you don’t have to navigate it on your own.

Medicaid Certified

BridgeWater Assisted Living can receive long-term care benefits provided by Medicaid through the Arizona Long-Term Care System (ALTCS). If your senior loved one requires the amenities that an assisted living community offers but is unable to afford it on their own, ALTCS can help you find high-quality, affordable, and local to Phoenix assisted living within your financial limits at the BridgeWater Assisted Living community.
