Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Personal Care and a nursing home?

Overall, the main difference between Personal Care and senior care offered in a nursing home is that nursing homes provide medical and personal care in a clinical setting, while Personal Care primarily provides care in a homelike, social setting.

Who qualifies for Personal Care?

Seniors whose health or well-being requires a higher level of support or those who would benefit from a healthier lifestyle and social engagement qualify for Personal Care. Most communities conduct a health assessment that follows state regulations to determine what level of care or assistance is best for each individual.

What kind of services does Personal Care provide?

Assisted living communities give older adults personalized care in a residential setting. Most communities – including Charter Senior Living Personal Care communities – provide services that include:

  • One to three meals a day
  • Monitoring of medication
  • Personal care, including dressing and bathing
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • Some medical services
  • Social and recreational activities
  • Care coordination
  • Mobility assistance
  • Complimentary transportation

Some assisted living communities offer respite care or Short-Term Stays. Additionally, some communities offer access to home care services for those who may need more assistance than is provided at the community but who are not yet ready for a skilled nursing care center.

How much does Personal Care cost?

The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 estimates the regional median monthly rate for assisted living is $4,190, which breaks down to around $138 per day. To put that into some context, the same survey says a private room in a nursing home will cost around $250 per day ($7,604 per month). Home health aide services average $129 per day.

Who pays for Personal Care?

While your personal health insurance coverage continues and your pharmaceutical coverage continues, Medicare typically doesn’t pay the costs for assisted living. Most assisted living residents pay for this kind of care from their personal resources or with help from coverage provided by long-term care insurance. Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefits can help cover the cost for eligible Veterans and surviving spouses who are over age 65.
