Assisted Living in Saint Paul, MN

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is for people who need a bit of help with activities of daily living. These activities can range from basic care, such as help with bathing or feeding, to lifestyle assistance, such as housekeeping or transportation to doctors' appointments. Most assisted living facilities also have vibrant communities, offering restaurant-style dining, gardening, cooking classes, book clubs and more.

An important thing to note is what assisted living is not. It is not the same as the 24-hour medical care that one would receive in a nursing home or similar facility. While a center may bring in certain medical personnel, such as a podiatrist or ophthalmologist, on a regular basis, they are not employed by the center itself.

What Are the Signs It's Time for Assisted Living?

If you notice a change in behavior that can affect your aging parent's safety or the safety of others, this is an indication that your parent may need some help. A neglected home, for example, could be an early sign that basic chores are becoming too much for your mom or dad to handle. If they forget to turn off the stove after cooking or forget to take their medication, this can also be problematic. Other signs that could indicate a need for extra care include:

  • Increase in agitation
  • Frustration with phones or other communication devices
  • Disregard of common safety precautions
  • Wandering off
  • Sundowning, or increased agitation as the day progresses into evening
The changes in your loved one's life are not the only cues to notice, however, particularly if you have been the one in charge of caring for him or her as more help has been necessary. Look for indications of caregiver stress, such as becoming easily irritated, hyper-vigilance, avoidance or increased feelings of guilt. These are signs that your aging parent's care needs may extend beyond what you are able to give.

As you start to notice these signs, start gathering the paperwork you will need to apply for assisted living. It's good to have medical records, financial guardianship and other information in place as you begin your search. This can make the transition from home to an assisted living center go more smoothly.

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Saint Paul, MN

While the transparency of Minnesota's records is great overall, they often leave out key bits of information, such as community size. The transparency rating for the state, therefore, has decreased in the last few years.

It's fairly easy, however, for customers and clients to file complaints against facilities. They can simply fill out a form on the Minnesota Commerce Department's website. Records of complaints can be made available to the public, so you are able to see the negative feedback that has been given about any facility you are considering. The most up-to-date information on licensed centers can be found on the Health Care Facility and Provider Database report.

How Can I Understand Assisted Living Costs?

There are a few factors that can make the cost of assisted living care in Saint Paul fluctuate from the average:

  • Level of service needed - If your loved one needs weekly help with housekeeping and a ride to run errands or keep appointments, the care provided is going to cost less than if he or she needs daily help bathing or dressing.
  • Type of facility - Centers that offer more services tend to cost more in order to be able to afford them. This is especially true of services that require specialized skills or knowledge.
  • Size of room - Does your mom live alone in her own studio apartment, or does she share a room and bathroom with another person? The more space she has to herself, the more it is likely to cost.
  • Location - Some areas of the country are more expensive than others. Some families find it less expensive to move to be near their loved ones rather than try to find affordable assisted living in their area.
  • Luxury level - Extraordinary amenities are nice, but they can significantly drive up the monthly cost of room and board.
Assisted living expenses can be divided into several items. Many facilities have a flat rate that covers the basic services everyone in the facility can take advantage of. If your loved one needs extra services or amenities offered, those expenses will typically be tacked on to the base price, raising your overall cost. Other facilities allow residents to order all the services they offer a la carte, which means your aging parent's account is only charged for the specific services he or she needs.

Don't forget about the initial costs of entering the community. Most centers charge deposits or some kind of entry fee before new residents arrive. Prices vary from facility to facility, so make sure you know the expenses for which you are responsible before making your final choice so that you can ensure it fits into the budget.

How Can I Afford Assisted Living?

When you start looking for facilities, the costs associated with finding a great place where your loved one is both comfortable and also gets the necessary support can be daunting. Take heart, for there are several different ways you can pay for assisted living care.

Many seniors have a set income through retirement payouts or Social Security, and this income can be used to cover the cost of their care. If that is not enough, it can be supplemented by family support from adult children or others who want to contribute financially to their assisted living care. The Aid and Attendance benefit from the Department of Veteran Services can be a source of support if your loved one served during a particular period of wartime.

For low-income seniors, assistance may be available from several channels. In Minnesota, some individuals may qualify for a program called Medical Assistance through Medicaid to aid with long-term care costs, particularly if some of the care involves medical treatment. This may not pay for room and board, but it can cover other expenses, leaving a little more leeway in the budget.

Seniors who purchased long-term care insurance when they were younger can probably use that policy to cover their assisted living costs. A life settlement gleaned from selling a life insurance policy for a cash payout can also be a source of income that can be used to pay for care.

If your loved one lived alone, they may not want to keep the house they had before. The equity earned from the sale of the home can be used to cover assisted living expenses. If a partner remains in the home, a reverse mortgage may be a possibility as well.

If possible, talk about the budget and how the care of loved ones is going to be covered before they get to the point of needing it. That way, you can have everything in place and you know exactly what your family can afford before you begin your search.
