Decatur House prides itself on simplified pricing. Becoming a resident of our beautiful community involves a one-time entrance fee and monthly rental fee to cover the cost of residency, services and all that Decatur House has to offer. Monthly pricing starts at $6,000.
No Hidden Fees
You’d be surprised at how affordable assisted living can be, especially when you compare it to the day-to-day costs of maintaining a home. Most people find that when comparing their household expenses to assisted living costs the difference can be nominal.
We know how important trust is in making this decision and want to start establishing that from the very beginning. When you consider all of your options, compare apples to apples, and know that many other providers have a lower starting rate and then add additional costs for things like medication assistance, laundry services and personal care. We don’t do that. Our rates are inclusive with no hidden fees.
Should you determine that our community is not the right option for you please call us, and we will be happy to help you find an appropriate setting or services.
While there are standard monthly rates for our apartments, you also have a range of service options to choose from depending on the level of day-to-day assistance you desire. Our nurse will sit down with each resident and their family to do a full assessment before any decisions are made regarding additional services.
All of our services can be tailored on a day-to-day basis to adjust to changing needs.
We also accept the Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit for qualified residents along with long-term care policies. For further information, contact us.
Long-term Care (LTC) Insurance and Reverse Mortgages are also important to consider during the process of finding a senior living community. For further information on LTC Insurance, visit LongTermCare.acl.gov. For further information on Reverse Mortgages, visit Reverse.org.
Tax Deductibility of Alzheimer’s Care
Many families request information regarding the tax deductibility of assisted living rent for Alzheimer’s residents. Unfortunately, because each resident’s circumstances and care needs are unique, we can’t provide you with a specific answer. While we can’t give you specific advice, we recommend you visit the link below. If you qualify, your rent may be deductible as an itemized medical expense and deductible from taxable income, to the extent it exceeds 7.5% of gross income. To determine if you qualify we encourage you to speak with your tax advisor and physician.
