How people pay for assisted living in Arlington

Seniors and their families typically pull together various payment methods to pay for assisted living in Arlington, Texas. Most seniors use cash from their savings accounts, retirement income, insurance policies, and funds from federal and state programs to pay for their ideal retirement community.

In this section, you’ll find comprehensive information on how you can use private pay options along with veterans benefits, Medicaid, and Medicare to cover long-term health care and assisted living costs.

Private pay methods

Seniors and families initially look into their private funds when they start devising a payment plan for assisted living in Arlington. Private pay options include all of a senior’s personal income and asset resources. This might include savings accounts, retirement pensions, investment returns, and/or Social Security benefits. And, on the plus side, Texas doesn’t levy a personal income tax, saving seniors from paying taxes on these income sources at the state level.

Long-term care insurance may also be an option for seniors looking to pay for assisted living. However, many long-term care insurance policies vary in what they cover, so it’s recommended that you consult with your loved one’s policy provider to see what assisted living costs they can cover.

Seniors might also turn to the following methods to help cover their assisted living costs, depending on available resources and current financial situations:

VA benefits

Number of veterans who live in Arlington as of 2021

About 47% of Arlington veterans are 65+.

Senior veterans or their surviving spouses may be eligible to receive pensions or disability benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to help with costs of living. The Aid and Attendance benefit is especially valuable for disabled senior veterans and spouses. This generous benefit can be added on to existing VA pensions to pay for anything that improves a veteran’s quality of life — which may include rent at an assisted living facility in Arlington.

If you’re at all unsure about your senior loved one’s eligibility status for VA benefits, you should reach out to a local veterans service organization (VSO) for benefit advising and assistance. Veteran service officers at your local VSOs can help identify your loved one’s eligibility status and help them properly apply to maximize their entitled benefits. They’ll help veterans successfully file a claim or even appeal a denied claim.

Arlington seniors are in luck, as most veteran services are available at one location — Tarrant County Veteran Services Office. This office connects veterans to local, regional, and national services offered by organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Texas Veterans Commission (TVC), and others. You can reach out to the Tarrant County Veterans Service Office in Arlington using the contact and website information provided below. In the below resources, you’ll also find some helpful online guides explaining more about veterans benefits for seniors.

Medicaid

Medicaid is a public health insurance program. It can’t be used to pay rent at a private assisted living community. But it can help cover some long-term health care services and medically necessary personal care services within an assisted living community in Arlington.

In Texas, the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) runs the state’s Medicaid programs, with STAR+PLUS being the most common among seniors.

STAR+PLUS — Texas’ Medicaid program for seniors

Seniors 65+ and individuals with disabilities receive Medicaid coverage through STAR+PLUS — the state’s managed care Medicaid program. This program covers basic health care services and some skilled nursing services through agencies licensed and certified by the HHSC. STAR+PLUS covers the following types of long-term care services:

  • Nursing and personal care services
  • Therapy extension services
  • Nutrition services
  • Transportation services

As of 2023, seniors 65+ must not exceed the following monthly income limits to qualify for STAR+PLUS:[03]

  • $2,742 as an individual
  • $5,484 as a couple
Home and community based services (HCBS) waiver

STAR+PLUS offers the home and community based services (HCBS) waiver program to help seniors remain in a community setting like an assisted living community, rather than an institutional setting like a nursing home.[04] This program can be used in an assisted living facility that qualifies as a residential or community-based setting. Care services should be provided through a health care agency contracted with the patient’s managed care provider.

STAR+PLUS’ HCBS waiver program can help cover the following care costs through Medicaid-contracted agencies:[04]

  • Personal and nursing care services
  • Respite, rehabilitative, and hospice care
  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapies
  • Medical supplies and equipment
  • Adaptive aids, such as eyeglasses, hearing aids, orthotic devices, and orthopedic shoes

When a senior applies for Medicaid, the HHSC will assess their need for the HCBS waiver program. As of 2023, seniors must meet the following eligibility requirements:[05]

  • Be 65 years of age or older.
  • Require an institutional level of care, commonly found in skilled nursing facilities.
  • Meet income requirements for STAR+PLUS.

Note for home and community based services (HCBS) settings: Not all assisted living communities in Arlington qualify as an HCBS setting; however, some will. In order to qualify, an assisted living facility must do the following:[04]

  • Be integrated into the greater local community.
  • Enable interested residents to seek work or volunteer opportunities.
  • Help the senior resident engage in local community life.
  • Allow the senior resident to control their own resources and finances.
  • Allow the senior resident to receive Medicaid care services.

Before move in, you should check with your prospective assisted living facility to see if they offer access to Medicaid care services on-site.

Help with Medicaid

If you need help understanding your loved one’s Medicaid eligibility, you can find a Texas Health and Human Services office near you using the Your Texas Benefits search tool below. You can also search for other local programs in Arlington through the HHSC services search tool. We’ve also provided some additional resources to help you better understand Medicaid benefits for seniors in the resources below.

Furthermore, as a senior, you can always contact your local area agencies on aging (or AAAs). These agencies provide assistance to Medicaid and Medicare beneficiaries in accessing local, long-term care services and disability programs.

Medicare

Medicare is a federal health insurance program that provides coverage to adults 65+ and individuals with disabilities. It can’t cover rent at an assisted living community, but it can help cover some medically necessary care costs.

The following Texas programs can help seniors save on Medicare costs and apply for Medicare benefits:

  • Texas Medicare Savings Programs cover some Medicare Parts A and B premiums, deductibles, copayments, and/or coinsurance. Part A covers hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care services. Part B covers certain doctors’ services, outpatient care, rehabilitative care, medical supplies, and preventive services.

As of 2023, seniors must not exceed a monthly income of $1,458 as an individual or $1,1972 as a couple to qualify for a Medicare Savings Program. Seniors must also not exceed $9,090 for resources as an individual or $13,630 as a couple.[03]

  • The Texas Legal Services Center (TLSC) houses the Health Information, Counseling, and Advocacy Program (commonly referred to as HICAP) and the Legal Hotline for Texans to offer seniors legal advice, referrals, and assistance with Medicare.

For assistance with your loved one’s Medicare benefits eligibility and enrollment, you can visit the Medicare website or dial 2-1-1. Below, you’ll also find applications and resources to help your senior loved one access their Medicare benefits in Arlington.

If you’d like additional assistance with Texas Medicare, you can reach out to a local Social Security Administration office, the Texas Legal Services Center, or your local long-term care ombudsman using the contact information below. Your local long-term care ombudsman can be found at the Area Agency on Aging of Tarrant County. They advocate for the health care rights of assisted living residents and help families learn about potential senior care options and payment methods.

Dual Medicaid and Medicare

If your senior loved one qualifies for both Medicare and Medicaid, they’re eligible to receive dual coverage through one Medicare-Medicaid Plan (MMP) in Arlington, Texas. This program is called the Dual Eligible Integrated Care Demonstration Project and is commonly referred to as “the Demonstration.” The Demonstration aims to do the following:

  • Improve service coordination.
  • Enhance quality of care.
  • Eliminate cost shifting between Medicare and Medicaid.
  • Reduce costs for both the Texas and federal governments.

To qualify for the Demonstration, a senior must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Have Medicare Parts A, B, and D and receive full Medicaid benefits.
  • Be enrolled in the STAR+PLUS program for at least 30 days.

Dual-eligible individuals should be automatically enrolled in the program. They may choose to opt out of the Demonstration after they receive an enrollment letter in the mail notifying them of their enrollment. To request additional information on this program, you can email managed_care_initiatives@hhsc.state.tx.us.

Understand Texas laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

In Texas, all assisted living facilities must be licensed and certified by Texas Health and Human Services (also known as HHS) in order to operate and house residents. Texas Health and Human Services refers to assisted living facilities as ALFs and categorizes them into Type A and Type B. Here’s how the two differ:[06]

  • Type A ALFs house residents who don’t require routine attendance and are capable of following directions in an emergency situation.
  • Type B ALFs provide care to residents who require nighttime attendance and assistance for evacuation during emergencies.

Most stand-alone assisted living facilities qualify as Type A, while facilities with memory care and/or other specialized care units typically qualify as Type B. In Arlington, assisted living facilities must meet several standards to remain licensed. Below, you’ll find a brief summary of these Texas assisted living standards.

Assisted living staffing and training regulations

  • Assisted living facility managers must complete a course in managing assisted living facilities. The course must cover general assisted living standards, resident characteristics, resident assessments, skills to care for residents, and information on food and nutrition services. Training must also include information on community resources, ethics, financial management, and federal laws — especially accessibility laws under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • Assisted living facilities must have caregivers on-site 24 hours a day. These caregivers are required to complete 4 hours of orientation before assuming any caregiver responsibilities. They must also complete 16 hours of supervised, on-the-job training. Training should cover assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), safety measures, fall prevention, emergency evacuation training, first aid procedures, behavior management, and more. Thereafter, caregivers must complete 6 hours of educational training on a yearly basis.
  • Each facility must have sufficient staff to maintain the facility’s order, safety, and cleanliness. Caregivers must also assist residents with medication routines, meal preparation and accommodations, and laundry.

Assisted living admissions, assessments, and care plans

  • Assisted living facilities should ensure that they can meet the needs of potential residents. They must not admit or retain residents whose needs cannot be met at the facility.
  • Prior to admission, facilities must provide a written admission agreement between the facility and the resident. The agreement should entail the services to be provided and charges for the services. If a provided service or supply can be covered by Medicare, the assisted living facility must let the residents know in a statement. Additionally, communities should secure each resident’s Medicare and/or Medicaid number at admission.
  • Newly admitted residents must have a health examination performed by a physician. It should be performed no later than 30 days before admission or 14 days after. This examination must then be used to conduct a comprehensive resident assessment and create a service plan.
  • Comprehensive assessments must include the resident’s previous place of residence, preferred language, sleep-cycle issues, behavioral symptoms, psychosocial issues, dementia history, activities of daily living patterns, preferred activities, cognitive skills, communication ability, physical function, continence status, nutritional status, medications, health conditions, and other details.[07]

Assisted living facility inspections

All Texas ALFs must pass a life safety code, physical inspection, and health inspection before they’re officially licensed. The life safety code ensures a facility’s ability to safely house residents, while the health inspection ensures that it’s equipped to protect resident health. After an initial inspection, facilities are inspected at least once every two years.[08]

During an inspection, Texas Health and Human Services checks for the following in an ALF:[08,09]

  • General facility construction
  • Management of the facility
  • Sufficient staff-to-resident ratios
  • Compliance with employee background checks
  • Implementation of safety and emergency features
  • Proper protection from hazardous areas
  • Documentation of fire drills, system checks, etc.

The general public can use the Long-term Care Provider Search to access each licensed assisted living facility’s most recent inspection report. The search also provides general facility information about licensing and certification. Inspection reports typically include the date of the most recent inspection, a list of violations, and the date violations were corrected. If you’d like to request additional information you didn’t find using the search, you can email rsltcr.recordsmgmt@hhsc.state.tx.us.

COVID-19 regulations for Arlington assisted living facilities

Currently, Arlington doesn’t have any specific COVID-19 regulations for assisted living facilities. However, Texas does require all assisted living facilities to develop their own infection prevention and control measures for common infections, including COVID-19. The measures should include guidance on a community’s hygiene practices, touching the following:

  • Disinfection and sterilization techniques
  • Use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Safe injection methods
  • Physical distancing requirements

Because communities are allowed to set their own regulations, it’s best to check with your prospective community to see what current COVID-19 rules they may have in place. You can also visit the coronavirus informational page on Arlington’s city website to find regular updates regarding local risk levels, testing, vaccinations, and more.

What to expect from assisted living in Arlington, Texas

Arlington is ideal for seniors seeking small-town vibes within a metropolitan area. This suburban city is just west of Dallas, and it offers stunning parks, captivating museums, appetizing restaurants, and a range of senior-friendly activities. The city even hosts an annual Aging Well Expo to help seniors get the most out of their lives in Arlington. At the expos, seniors receive free health screenings, fitness demonstrations, and entertainment. They also receive free tips and information to help them thrive within the city.

Seniors also have an array of senior living options to choose from in Arlington. From multitier senior care communities to group homes, seniors are sure to find the perfect place to call home for the next chapter of their lives. Learn about what our assisted living partners have to offer in Arlington below.

Multiple care options ensure resident comfortability

In Arlington, seniors are sure to find the ideal environment for their retirement due to the multiple care options available. Nearly half of our partner communities in Arlington offer multiple care levels on-site to promote aging in place. This means that these communities combine assisted living with independent living or memory care, so residents don’t have to worry about moving if their care needs ever increase.

This multitier care approach is especially beneficial for senior couples with different care needs. For example, if one partner needs assistance with some activities of daily living while the other partner requires specialized memory care services, they can choose a senior living partner that offers both assisted living and memory care.

Group home settings for seniors seeking a homey environment

Many seniors are afraid to leave the comforts of their home environment when considering senior living. Luckily, seniors in Arlington don’t have to, because we partner with several assisted living group homes in the area. These are residential home settings for seniors in need of daily care. Approximately 30% of our Arlington assisted living partners classify as group homes in residential neighborhoods.[01]

This option is ideal for seniors who want to remain living in a family-style house. These homes are traditional in design, yet equipped with safety features for seniors. Caregivers are staffed 24/7 in the homes and provide family-style activities and personalized care services. Furthermore, group homes typically offer home-cooked meals within a cozy dining room, a yard and patio to enjoy fresh air, and traditional living room areas to promote gathering and socialization.

Group homes also enable caregivers to build better relationships with residents due to the smaller resident-to-caregiver ratio. The smaller ratio enables caregivers to better learn a resident’s personality, needs, and preferences, which promotes comfort among residents.

Engaging activities and amenities stimulate residents’ minds, bodies, and souls

Arlington assisted living communities offer a range of on-site amenities and a diverse calendar of activities to help residents stay healthily active and engaged. Some communities host scientifically researched programs proven to help seniors thrive, while other communities encourage resident-led activities.

Some of the most common activities you’ll find in our partner Arlington assisted living communities include the following:

  • Art and cooking classes
  • Fitness classes (chair yoga, strength training, aerobics, etc.)
  • Devotional services
  • Lifelong learning lectures or classes
  • Interest clubs (book clubs, chess clubs, gardening clubs, etc.)
  • Happy hours and/or wine tastings
  • Holiday parties and birthday celebrations
  • Group games (trivia, bingo, poker, board games, etc.)
  • Singing events (karaoke nights, choir groups, etc.)
  • Day trips and outings (local diners, museums, local festivals, etc.)

Seniors are also free to explore on-site amenities at their own leisure. Some of the most common amenities in our partner Arlington assisted living communities include the following:

  • Arts and crafts centers
  • Fitness centers
  • Beauty salons and barbershops
  • Libraries and business centers
  • Devotional spaces
  • Gardens with raised gardening beds
  • Game rooms
  • On-site cafes or bistros
  • Common living spaces (sunrooms, lounges, etc.)
  • Courtyards and walking paths

A select few of our assisted living partners in Arlington, Texas, also offer some luxe amenities like on-site Jacuzzis, spas, convenience stores, and more.

Transportation for seniors in Arlington

Many active, independent seniors drive in the Arlington area due to its easygoing traffic and lack of mass public transit options. However, most of our partner assisted living communities in Arlington offer complimentary or at-cost transportation services right on-site. So, if you don’t feel like driving that day, just ask the concierge to schedule a ride! If a particular community doesn’t have its own transportation service, you can also ask the concierge to coordinate a ride for you using a ride service.

Arlington doesn’t have its own public transit system, though the city still offers a transportation service for seniors in the area. The city provides Handitran to seniors 65+ and individuals with disabilities. To apply for this transportation service, seniors need to provide proof of age. Upon application, seniors must pay $10. Afterward, seniors only pay $2 per one-way trip or $55 per month for unlimited rides. If your loved one must use a public transportation service, be sure they’re accompanied by a caregiver to ensure their safe arrival and return.
