Facts about assisted living in Massachusetts

Cost and Payment Options for Assisted Living in Massachusetts

Statewide in Massachusetts, the cost of assisted living is well above the national average. The Massachusetts state average is $5,495 monthly, though it’s still much cheaper than a retirement home in the state of Massachusetts. The most expensive cities are the larger, more well-known metropolitan areas of Worcester and Boston. The range between both those metro areas swings between a very high range of $5,735 and $5,850 per month for assisted living.

The least expensive cities for assisted living in Massachusetts, which is not saying much in this case, are still far enough above the national average. They are Pittsfield and Springfield at $4,200 and $4,950 per month respectively. Looking into neighboring states may be something to research when considering assisted living for your loved one. Massachusetts is quite expensive at its base-rate and not every family can afford assisted living here. And this is not even including the possibility of Massachusetts memory care or any other specialized care.

Memory care is close to $2,000 more over the top, with a price range between $1,099 and $1,648 above assisted living per month.

Medicaid does not currently have any programs that will pay for assisted living in Massachusetts directly. But there is a waiver called Group Adult Foster Care Program that does help supplement the cost of room and board for assisted living facilities in Massachusetts. The stipulation is you have to qualify for Medicaid. The income cap is at $1,041 per month maximum. There may be programs available to assist you if your income does not meet the requirement.

If you have a challenge in paying for Massachusetts assisted living, then there are some options you may want to look into. If there are no waivers to assist you with assisted living directly, then timing of when the senior enters a senior care facility may need to be considered. Why? Because there are waivers that do cover some limited personal care in other facilities such as adult day care, adult foster care and at home care. Foster care is the same as the senior being at home in the community. Massachusetts has plenty of senior living options, but if assisted living is what your loved one needs, consider the information above in helping you research the right facility.

  • Ask how the facility handles medications

How does the facility care for its residents and administer their medications to them when the need arises? Do they have a standard procedure for it? If you or your loved one will need help with medication during your stay in the facility, then you must find answers to this question before choosing any community to call home.

  • What is the best time to move into the facility?

Most assisted living facilities in Massachusetts tend to have a high occupancy rate during specific times of the year. It’s best you find out when they are most likely to accept new residents and the process it requires.
