We understand that one of the largest factors in making a decision to move into a community like the Arbors is the monthly cost. We will work with you to try and find programs to assist you with your expenses and we’ll provide you with pricing options to best meet your needs.
All-Inclusive, Fixed Rate Pricing: Our All Inclusive, Fixed Rate Pricing allows you to budget a consistent amount throughout your loved one’s stay. The monthly rate will never change. Our pricing includes the room charge, meals, housekeeping, laundry, in-house activities and all personal care. Doctor visits, transportation, medications, podiatry care and additional services such as guest meals, social outings, special events or special programs are not included.
Private and Semi-Private Suites: At the Arbors, we have three room options for our residents; private, double and triple
occupancy. With each additional resident in a room, the cost for the rent goes down. We began offering triple occupancy as an option several years ago as a way to offer a rent charge that is comparable to some group homes, while still providing a full program of activities and socialization. We’ve also found that many residents enjoy the companionship that comes with sharing a room. Please call for current rent rates.
Long-term Care Insurance: We’ve worked with a number of Long Term Care Insurance providers and can assist you in finding out what coverage you may have. Barbara, our office manager, would be happy to call your provider prior to move in to see what they’ll provide during your loved one’s stay.
Veteran’s Aid & Attendance Benefits: The VA offers a little known benefit for Active Duty Veterans and their
widows/widowers called Aid & Attendance. This benefit can assist with the payments for communities such as the Arbors. To get additional information, we recommend you call a local Veterans Service Officer with the State of Nevada Department of Veterans Services office at (775) 321-4880 or you can stop by their office in the VA regional office at 5460 Reno Corporate Drive, Room 104, Reno, NV 89511. We recommend you be persistent with them as they are very busy right now and might not immediately return your call.
Deduction of Expenses: Our interpretation of the tax code is that you can deduct the expenses associated with living at the Arbors. For more information, visit our blog we recently wrote about the ability to deduct these expenses.
Alzheimer’s Association Respite Stay Grants: The local office of the Alzheimer’s Association has grant money available for short term stays for families who need to find someone to care for their loved one for a few days. This grant has some income requirements. Contact the northern Nevada Alzheimer’s Association office at (775) 786-8061 for more information.
