Paying for Senior Living

Assisted Living costs vary from community to community and depend on the level of additional personal care services an individual may need or want. At Allerton House Assisted Living, residents pay a monthly service fee. There is no buy-in.

Most residents pay for assisted living through a combination of savings and investments, the sale of real estate, and participation in reverse mortgage programs.

Potential Tax Benefits

Some assisted living costs may be tax deductible. Our flyer, Information on Tax Deductibility of Assisted Living Costs, answers many common questions about eligible deductions.

Veteran’s Benefit/Aid & Attendance Benefit

Veterans and their spouses may receive benefits toward assisted living when they can fully document their need for medical assistance on a routine basis for certain physical or cognitive impairments. Residents must meet several criteria to be considered eligible.

For more information, contact your local Veterans Agent and an Allerton House marketing director.
