Understanding costs associated with home care, adult day care, and assisted living can be quite difficult. This page will help with understanding these costs for the state of Arizona. It explores different financial assistance and payment programs available for caring for the elderly, wherever they reside in the state.


Through the ALTCS program, long-term care may be provided at home, in adult foster care, or in a nursing home. This program also pays for care related services for those in assisted living. Services and benefits via ALTCS may include home nursing, meal delivery, durable medical equipment, and more. The applicants must meet impairment requirements in order to receive these benefits. There are no enrollment caps for this program, which means anyone who is eligible is able to receive services.


The Non-Medical, Home and Community Based Services (NMHCBS) program provides non-medical services to the elderly so they can remain living in their home instead of moving to a more expensive facility. Benefits may include personal care services, adult day care, homemaker services, and home modifications. Arizona residents must meet age and activity-assistance requirements to qualify.


Government assistance in paying for assisted living costs in Arizona is limited at both the state and federal levels. Residents or their families often shoulder the cost of assisted living using personal financial resources such as savings, health insurance or long-term care insurance.


Seniors who choose assisted living in Arizona are in good company as the state has the second-fastest growing population in the nation with just over 13% of the population age 65 and older, according to a 2008 survey by the U.S. Census Bureau.


In addition to accommodations and meals, Arizona assisted living facilities also provide professional assistance to seniors who need help with eating, managing medications, dressing and other activities of daily living, but are in generally good health and do not require skilled nursing.


In the state of Arizona, there are several types of facilities that provide care services for adults. Facilities that specifically provide assisted living services, such as bathing, grooming or supervision, for adults 60 years or older are classified as assisted living homes or assisted living centers.


The Arizona Department of Health Services Bureau of Residential Facilities Licensing is charged with licensing and inspecting assisted living homes and assisted living centers. Inspections are performed as part of an annual licensure survey or when a complaint is lodged against the facility.


As a result of legislation passed in 2011, the Arizona Board of Examiners of Nursing Care Institution Administrators and Assisted Living Facility Managers assumed regulatory oversight of assisting living facility manager and caregiver training programs. This necessitated writing new rules that established the curriculum standards, the approval and renewal process of these training programs, and when corrective action is warranted.


Caregivers participating in an approved Assisted Living Facility Caregiver training program receive training in a variety of topics including at six hours of infection control, at least five hours of fire, safety, and emergency procedures, and 12 hours of basic caregiver skills, which include observing and reporting pain, applying clean bandages, and providing assisted living services such as bathing, and toileting. Students are required to complete at least 136 hours of instruction, of which 40 are of instructor-supervised practicum.


The first step in opening an assisted living home should be an honest assessment if this is the right business for you. I have seen many people who find out about the assisted living home business, discover the financial opportunity and relatively low barrier to entry, and then quickly make a decision to start their own home. This is a mistake.


I have seen registered nurses, hospice owners and physicians all struggle to successfully operate an assisted living home. It is a unique healthcare environment which is not as simple as it appears from the outside looking in. I recommend you find a mentor or someone willing to allow you to volunteer at their home in order to truly understand what an assisted living home is about and find out if it is the right business for you.


The ideal home is single level and has an open floor plan with minimal or no carpeting and adequate square footage. Ideally it will also have a common bathroom that is easily accessible and can be converted to have a roll-in shower. Larger living areas such as great rooms are better for accommodating residents during activities and leisure time.


You will need to find an owner willing to lease for assisted living. The owners may not understand the assisted living home business and have reservations. They may also ask for HOA approval. HOAs typically influence property owners to avoid leasing to assisted living home leases. Often, when you find an owner willing to lease for assisted living the monthly rate is double that of the market rate.


If at all possible, I highly recommend owning the property in which you license your assisted living business. You have none of the risks associated with leasing. You will also strengthen you overall business and have a business asset beyond the value of the home. 041b061a72
