The average cost for a private room in a residential care home in Tucson is $3000 - $4000+. Senior assisted living and memory care facilities run approximately $4000+. The variance depends on whether the resident requests a private bathroom, quality of care, and services the senior facility provides. VA benefits can help defer those costs. Retired military, veterans with active duty during specific time frames and surviving spouses are often eligible for these benefits.

If you have a long term care insurance policy, they can be a valuable asset in paying for senior living costs. Every policy is different, and it's necessary for you to contact your insurance broker to find out the details. Generally, these policies will pay a specific dollar amount for in home care or assisted living services. These policies are separate from Medicare or any other health related insurance policies.
A reverse mortgage is a special type of home loan for seniors, age 62 or older, which frees them up from having to make a monthly mortgage payment. Borrowers are only responsible for property taxes and insurance. Reverse mortgages allow seniors to access their home equity and defer payment of the home loan until they die, sell, or move out.
Unfortunately, Medicare and health insurance policies don't pay for assisted living homes or senior facility services. If the resident doesn't have long term care insurance or VA benefits, it's usually up to the resident to pay privately. Costs can be considered from incomes, investments, savings or real estate.
