Rates FAQ

Prior to move-in, our nurse will complete an assessment of your loved one’s needs. We also review each resident’s health and service needs every 90 days. You’ll have the opportunity to be a part of these discussions so that together we can build a service plan that best meets your loved one’s needs. The assessment creates a point total, which will fall into a level of care. We have five levels of care in assisted living, and a corresponding rate for each level. (Memory care has a flat care rate.)

Yes, there are multiple reasons your rates might change. You might move to a larger apartment that has a higher base rate. Should your loved ones’ care needs increase, this can also increase your level of care and corresponding care rate. We also may adjust our overall rates about once a year, based on market factors such as inflation, cost of living, and caregiver wages.

The second resident in any apartment will have a spousal base rate of $40/day. In addition, each spouse will have their own care assessment and associated care rate (if applicable).

Yes, as is standard in the senior living industry, we have a one-time, non-refundable Community Fee. It covers the costs associated with admission, residence preparation, orientation, and initial needs assessment. See this fee in our simple, all-inclusive pricing above.

Medicaid is a state-administered subsidy program that provides health and housing coverage to eligible low-income individuals. The program greatly varies in eligibility and benefits by state and county. Select Bickford communities in Michigan, Nebraska, and Ohio participate in the program. Please reach out to your local Branch in these states to inquire if they accept Medicaid/waiver and for the specific guidelines regarding that Branch’s process.
