What’s the Cost of Assisted Living in Roanoke?

It’s no secret that the cost of everything seems to be going up and up and up. Especially health care. And when you consider almost 70% of seniors over 65 will need some type of long-term care, finding a practical solution makes sense.

A Life Plan Community, like The Glebe, offers an Independent Living lifestyle with access to a full continuum of on-site care, including Assisted Living, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing, Rehabilitation and Home Care. 

If you haven’t looked at Assisted Living costs for yourself or a loved one, you may be in for a surprise. According to the Genworth Cost of Care survey, the median cost of Assisted Living in the Roanoke area is now around $5,925 per month. Hiring a home health aide for 44 hours a week can cost $4,385 a month. And those costs will almost surely continue to rise every year.

Benefits of Assisted Living

How is Assisted Living different from Independent Living? While Independent Living is designed for seniors who can fully live on their own, an Assisted Living community provides you with just the level of support you want and need to maintain your independence. However, if the Assisted Living community is part of a Life Plan Community, residents usually have access to all services and amenities on the campus, including all dining venues, the fitness center, social and educational events, and more. Additionally, Assisted Living residents can expect: 

  • A private residence the resident can decorate to their liking
  • Three delicious and nutritious meals a day
  • Personal assistance with daily activities, including bathing, walking, dressing, eating, and medication management
  • On-site licensed nursing care 24/7
  • On-site physical, speech, occupational and aquatic therapies
  • Emergency call system with pendant
  • Complete  indoor and outdoor maintenance 
  • Regular housekeeping and laundry services
  • Transportation to scheduled events and doctor appointments
  • Full calendar of clubs, activities, classes and social opportunities
