How people pay for assisted living in Sacramento

Seniors and their loved ones use personal income sources, benefit programs, or a combination of both to cover the costs of Sacramento assisted living care, room, and board. In this section, we guide you through veterans benefits, Medi-Cal, and Medicare resources for seniors. You’ll also find local, senior-specific resources in each section that can help guide you through application processes.

Private pay methods in Sacramento

You and your senior loved one’s personal income like savings accounts, investment returns, pensions, Social Security benefits, and any of the sources below can be used for assisted living costs:

VA benefits for assisted living in Sacramento

Veteran-specific benefits may be available to Sacramento veterans age 65 and older. CalVet is California’s veteran services program that helps qualifying senior veterans or their surviving spouses enroll in a Veterans Benefit Enhancement (or VBE) program. VBEs can help seniors switch from Medi-Cal to VA health care, which can provide veterans access to more VA benefits if they have a disability.

For example, the VA Aid and Attendance benefit is usually the most generous U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefit that gives monthly payments to eligible senior veterans. Your senior loved one can use these monthly payments to cover the costs of assisted living. For help with the lengthy and difficult application process, contact any of the resources below.

The county’s Department of Human Assistance Veterans Services can provide assistance with seniors’ benefit applications and can connect seniors with a local veterans service officer. Veterans service officers are essential to a smooth process and maximizing your benefits, whether or not you believe you or your loved one qualifies. Start with these VA benefits experts before you start your application so you can ensure the best chance of receiving all the benefits you or your loved one are eligible for.

Sacramento also has its own Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) chapters, which are groups that can offer additional support.

Sacramento Medi-Cal for assisted living

California’s Medicaid program, called Medi-Cal, doesn’t cover the cost of room and board in Sacramento assisted living communities. Instead, seniors of low-income status may be able to use Medi-Cal to cover the costs of health care services. If a senior is eligible for Medi-Cal, they may benefit from the Assisted Living Waiver (also known as ALW). ALW is a Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver that helps seniors receive care in an assisted living community rather than in a hospital or a skilled nursing facility.

Covered California, the state’s health care portal, can help seniors access Medi-Cal in addition to low-cost full coverage health care plans. Seniors must have low-income status to benefit from Covered California. The application process is convenient for seniors, as the two programs share an application. This means that, to know what benefits a senior qualifies for, only a single application has to be completed.

You can contact a range of Sacramento organizations for help with a Medi-Cal application. California’s Medi-Cal Rx Customer Service Center and Sacramento’s Area 4 Agency on Aging are wonderful resources to get you started. You can also reach out to the county’s long-term care ombudsperson or review the state’s comprehensive guide, called My Medi-Cal.

Medicare assisted living coverage in Sacramento

Medicare is a federal health insurance program that may cover medical costs, such as medically necessary in-home care. Review each part of Medicare below to see what may be covered:

  • Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, some home health care, and hospice care.
  • Medicare Part B covers some doctors’ appointments, preventive services, outpatient care, and medical supplies.
  • Medicare Part D covers some prescription medications and vaccines.[03]

Medicare will not cover custodial costs, such as the cost of room and board in an assisted living community, but seniors can use Medicare Savings Programs if they’re enrolled in Medicare and meet low-income requirements. These programs may cover part of a senior’s Medicare premium.

Seniors can apply for Medicare Savings Programs online and see which of California’s four Medicare Savings Programs best fit their needs. Each of the different options may cover portions of Medicare Part A, B, D, or a combination of parts.

For assistance with the Medicare application process, we recommend that your first step is to reach out to the local Social Security Administration office. After, seek help from the county’s long-term care ombudsperson or enroll in a local Medicare Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) to fully understand the benefits. 2-1-1 Sacramento is another resource that can help you and your senior loved one learn more about local senior services.

Understand California laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) regulates and licenses assisted living facilities in Sacramento. The CDSS also licenses other senior care facilities in the state, often called residential care facilities for the elderly. In addition, the CDSS licenses continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), which provide independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing services all on one senior living campus.[04]

Seniors must be assessed before joining an assisted living community in California. The assessment process may involve interviews and health record reviews. In addition, assisted living facilities are required to follow these regulations:

  • House a maximum of two residents per bedroom
  • Provide individual privacy in each bathroom
  • Ensure bedrooms can accommodate equipment, such as wheelchairs and walkers
  • Provide clean and accessible common areas for residents
  • Provide activities involving social, leisure, and daily living skills[05]

Assisted living facilities are inspected by the CDSS once a year and within 10 days of receiving a complaint.[05] Inspection reports for each licensed community can be found through the CDSS Care Facility Search. Scroll down to “Search By Facility Group,” and select “Elderly Assisted Living.” Then, select the “Facility Type” and “Sacramento County.” Finally, click on the search button. You can also search by facility name or address.

COVID-19 regulations for Sacramento assisted living facilities

Sacramento County has guidelines for isolation and quarantine to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but they don’t have a mask mandate in place.

What to expect from assisted living in Sacramento

Sacramento assisted living communities strive to break senior care stereotypes. Local offerings range from intimate residential homes to larger facilities that have multiple care types, enabling seniors and their families to choose a new home that fits their unique needs and preferences. Whether it’s an apartment-style community or a shared or private room in a residential care home, Sacramento assisted living communities provide a meaningful and enriching retirement.

Intimate communities

In Sacramento, 61% of assisted living communities in A Place for Mom’s network are in residential care homes instead of larger facilities. Sometimes also known as senior board and care homes, these homelike settings house smaller numbers of seniors. Sacramento’s residential care homes offer standard services and amenities like daily assistance, three meals a day, housekeeping, transportation, and cozy communal spaces.

If you or your loved one are intimidated by the idea of moving into a large facility, a residential care home may be a good fit. Some of these options in Sacramento even have higher staff-to-resident ratios that allow for more personalized care and companionship. Residents will get all the care they need and the benefits of a maintenance-free, socially enriched lifestyle within the comforts of a home.

Combinations of senior care types

Aside from one stand-alone assisted living community, 36% of the Sacramento communities in A Place for Mom’s network offer a variety of care combinations. These combinations can include independent living and memory care services, connecting seniors to more peers and additional services for future consideration.

Larger care communities such as these usually come with more amenities, like swimming pools, fitness centers, and full-service restaurants. Seniors and their loved ones may also find peace of mind when they choose a community that offers memory care in particular. Should your loved one need memory care in the future, moving into an assisted living facility that offers both services removes the need for relocating in the future.

A fulfilling Sacramento retirement

Sacramento assisted living communities can help your senior family member live a fulfilling, maintenance-free lifestyle all while receiving the daily care they need. Aside from creating individualized care plans and lifting a significant responsibility off of families’ shoulders, these communities strive to make each day meaningful. And throughout their experience, senior residents won’t have to lift a finger.

In communities with multiple care types, seniors can take a dip in a swimming pool just outside their door or stroll along the walking paths while the community caregivers take care of their housekeeping and laundry chores. After, seniors can pamper themselves or try a new hairstyle in the full-service salon, spa, and barber shop. In the evenings, they’re encouraged to meet up with their peers to enjoy a tableside dining experience or to catch their favorite film in the on-site movie theater. Each day belongs to the seniors in Sacramento assisted living communities.

In residential care homes, seniors can find intriguing on- and off-site activities. Field trips to local museums and shopping excursions are engaging and also convenient, thanks to the communities that offer transportation services. Whether it’s enjoying live on-site entertainment or simply taking advantage of their maintenance-free lifestyle, seniors can create a fulfilling retirement.
