Senior Care Center, a company in California that helps people find care facilities for their family members, is very happy to announce that their advisers can help customers in choosing an assisted living place for their loved ones at a reasonable price. The company provides assistance to people in California who are looking for a residential care facility such as assisted living facilities, Alzheimer's care communities, residential home care, nursing homes, and more for members of their family. The company is excited to help their customers find good care facilities for their family members.

Assisted living provides assistance in personal care and everyday living. It is different from other senior care homes as its focus is on helping seniors with basic needs and some medical attention. Casey Ryeback, a representative for Senior Care Center, says, “We are proud that our service helps families with the stress of choosing an assisted living home for their family members. In addition to the help that our 400+ advisers can give there is our website which is at https://srcarecenter.com. It can also make the decision process of choosing a facility easier.” Ryeback says that, with the rising costs of assisted living, the company can help families find a facility that matches their aging member's needs at a budget-friendly price. Families can get more information on assisted living facilities in California by calling (866) 518-0936.

Ryeback points out that the rising costs in the nation of late have led to more expensive assisting living. Assisted living facilities can have either all-inclusive pricing or fee-for-service pricing that adds extra costs for a variety of optional additional services. The fees that people can generally expect to pay include such things as a one-time upfront fee and a monthly base fee. These and other additional services may incur their own separate fees. The national average cost of assisted living in 2018 is $3,750 a month and $45,000 a year. According to an article by Senior Housing News, assisted living care costs have increased by 6.7% in 2018 due to the continuing shortage of skilled labor in senior living and a tendency for seniors to wait too long to receive specialized care to the point where more intensive levels of care are necessary. Concerned families can learn more by contacting Senior Care Center.

Brookdale Senior Living, a company with over 800 senior living communities, says that traditionally, Medicare does not cover the costs of assisted living facilities or long-term care facilities. Medicare is more often used to pay for a skilled nursing facility or home health care. In some states, Medicaid is used to pay for some of the costs associated with assisted living if the loved one has a limited income. Medicaid is designed to help seniors and some individuals with disabilities pay for healthcare when they are unable to pay for it themselves.

CNBC says, in an article published on their website, that health care costs are making consumers more afraid of medical bills than an actual illness so patient visits to a doctor have been on the decline. And the Cleveland Clinic's CEO told CNBC, "Untimely visits or delay of visits to the physician ultimately leads to the increased cost of care." Higher deductibles and out-of-network fees are just some of the out-of-pocket costs that can hit a consumer's pockets. U.S. health care costs keep rising and hit more than $10,000 a year per person in 2016. According to a new national poll, over the past 12 months, 44 percent of Americans said they didn't go to the doctor when they were sick or injured because of financial concerns. Meanwhile, 40 percent said they skipped a recommended medical test or treatment.

Families can discover more about the company's services, including help in choosing assisted living facilities, on their website at srcarecenter.com. They may also contact Casey Ryeback at the Senior Care Center by calling (866) 518-0936.
