Medicaid Can Help with a Kentucky Senior Living Community
Senior living community costs can add up quickly. Many times folks enter a community with specific needs, but those needs can grow and evolve over time. Medicaid helps seniors with limited funds cover health costs. A joint federal and state program, items like long-term care are covered with Medicaid. The Kentucky state Medicaid office can provide additional information as each state maintains its own guidelines. 

Ranking The Best Senior Living Facilities in Kentucky

Ranking anything isn’t easy. There are several variables to consider, and mature adult communities are no different.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Charter Senior Living of Bowling Green:

When we were considering a place for our parents to live, Don gave my sister & I a tour of the facility. We were immediately impressed with the sense of family. Don knew every resident by name as did other employees. The residents were smiling as we passed them. It was an easy decision for where they would live. After our parents moved in, the administration and staff were always available to talk about my concerns and quickly responded. There was always a deep caring for the residents that I observed. Taking care of seniors is not an easy task…

I am forever grateful for this company. They have been a tremendous help to me. They are out working the frontlines during Covid and that is something that not everyone can say. The girls in the office are very kind and helpful. I would recommend Home Instead if you have a family member in need of care.
