Understanding Elder Care:
A Guide by Graceful Living

We understand that the decision to transition a loved one into assisted living isn't easy. There's a lot to consider, especially when it comes to understanding costs and financial support. Let's help you navigate this journey with clarity and compassion.

The Age Shift & Its Impact:

By 2030, the US is set to witness a significant demographic change:

  • More Americans will be over 65 than under 18. This means there's an increasing need for elder care solutions like ours.

Breaking Down the Costs:

It's essential to be informed about the costs associated with elder care. Here's a quick glance at average yearly costs in 2021:

  • Full-time home helper                       ~$60,000

  • Shared room in a nursing home    ~$94,000

Unfortunately, more than 40% of baby boomers don't have retirement savings. That's why planning ahead is so crucial.

Medicare & Insurance Overview:

Understanding the financial support available can be a game-changer:

  • Medicare -  Typically doesn't cover most long-term care.

  • Medicaid  -  Assists only after most personal assets are depleted.

The Role of Family Caregivers:

Family has always been a cornerstone of elder care. However, the dynamic is shifting:

  • Changing family structures and sizes mean boomers might have fewer family members to rely on.

  • By 2050, for every person over 80, there might be fewer than three potential family caregivers.

This underscores the importance of professional assisted living solutions that provide consistent and compassionate care.
