Some people may think it is expensive to live in an assisted living facility. Once you move into a facility, you do not have to worry about property taxes, home insurance, home maintenance, utilities (except telephone service), and reduced or no transportation costs. Staff is available 24 hours for assistance, and the peace of mind that comes with it is priceless.
Residents are encouraged to bring their own furnishings and re-create their own living area.

Long term care insurance pays for assisted living services as long as you meet some criteria. If you or your spouse is a veteran and served in the military during war time, you may be eligible for additional pension if you live in an assisted living facility. Even though most of our residents are private pay, several of our residents pay with Long Term Care Insurance, and the Aid and Attendance Pension from the Veteran’s Administration. Medicare and Medi-Cal do not cover assisted living services.
