Can I Manage the Cost of Assisted Living in Sun City West, Arizona?

Is Sun City West a good place to retire?

The popularity of retirement communities exploded in the Phoenix area starting in the 1960’s. In 1978, Sun City West, Arizona became a retirement destination dedicated to a life of leisure. As the original residents aged, senior living services became needed, and Sun City West Assisted Living was born.

If you’re looking for assisted living in Arizona, you’re in luck. While the national average for assisted living facilities is $4300 per month, Arizona’s average is considerably less.

How can I pay for assisted living in Arizona?

Here are some options that can help when you need some assistance and supportive care:

Long-term care insurance: Plan ahead for LTC insurance needs because you will not be eligible once you have a chronic condition. It covers services not usually covered by health insurance, including activities of daily living (ADL’s) and memory care services.

Veterans Aid Benefits: The VA program in Arizona is generous with various pension programs for assisted living for you and/or your spouse.

Life insurance policies: Your life insurance policy may have an option for Accelerated Death Benefits. It’s a tax-free option of using your money to live and receive care in assisted living.

Reverse mortgages: This is a bit more complicated and will take research to find the right one for you. Using your home’s equity can be an asset for the assisted living or memory care services you may require.
