Or, maybe you know that your loved one could greatly benefit from assisted living services but find yourself asking, "How will I finance assisted living?"
The answer may surprise you. There are opportunities to ensure that your loved one can get the assisted living lifestyle he/she wants at the value they need. Some of these opportunities include:
- According to Life Services Network of Illinois, if assisted living services are provided as part of a personal plan of care, then residents, family members or other individuals who pay for someone's care can file the entire monthly cost of assisted living as a tax-deductible medical expense.
