Room Rates

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what other facilities room rates were for residents. I haven't been an AD for very long but it seems like ours are rather steep. we range anywhere from $58.50 to $91.50 a day. that does include meals, aide time, nurse time, laundry service, etc.

Our private room rate is $200.00 a day. Our Medicaid rate is around $118.00 a day. It includes all meals, medication, skilled nursing 24/7, activities services, a Registered Dietitcian available 5 days a week, Doctors visit once a month, clean linen and all housekeeping services 24/7, laundry services, banking services, someone to shop for them, three different clothing store services, snacks 3 times a day, free cable, free internet access, social services, financial planners, funeral planners, beauty and barber shop in your own home, religious services in your own home, pastoral care, Seasonal celebrations, free outings to community events, free entertainment, free utilities, free water services.....

 

Take into account all the person would be paying for living on their own, including a gallon of gas costing 2.47 a gallon............Pretty good deal! A fancy hotel costs $200.00 a night and all you get a mint on your pillow.......So not a bad deal!!!!

Hi

Is your facility must be private pay or you worked at AL fcaility? They are more expensive or not covered by Medicare/Medicade in some states.

The key is that people must not a certain dollar amount prior to 5 years of entering a LTC facility. This is hard on lots of elders!

I don't know the room rates but those on Medicare/Medicaid all of their money goes to the facility except for the $60 a month that the residents keeps. This does not sound like much but when almost everything is supplied for them it usually is enough, the only ones who have a problem with this amount are usually the smokers. If a res. accumlates a certain amount of money it must be spent, I have had to go & spend their money for them you would be surprised how hard this is to do.

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
