Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between residential care and a nursing home?

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

Who qualifies for residential 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 Residential 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 Residential Care provide?

RC communities give older adults personalized care in a residential setting. Most RC communities – including Charter Senior Living RC communities – provide services, including:

  • 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 RC communities offer respite care or short-term care. 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 residential care cost?

The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 estimates the Sioux City area regional median monthly rate for AL is $3,087, which breaks down to around $101 per day. To put that into some context, the same survey says a private room in a nursing home will cost around $267 per day ($8,116 per month). Home health aide services average $213 per day.

Charter Senior Living of Northpark Place’s Residential Care services start at $3,300.

Does Medicare pay for Residential Care?

While your personal health insurance and pharmaceutical coverage continue, Medicare typically doesn’t pay for AL.

Most RC residents pay for this kind of care from their personal resources or with help from coverage provided by long-term care insurance. Veterans benefits can help cover the cost for eligible Veterans and surviving spouses who are over age 65.
