Alaska has beauty that is incomparable. There are millions of tourists that travel here each year to witness one of the most scenic states in the country every year, and often travel hundreds, if not thousands of miles.
For the senior citizens and older adults that call the place home, whether they live in their own home or an assisted living facility, Alaska is known for being remote. The secluded state has well under a million residents with no major cities outside Anchorage and Fairbanks. In fact, most of the assisted living facilities in the state of Alaska are concentrated in the cities of Anchorage and Fairbanks, although there are facilities in other parts of Alaska as well.
The place is known for the tough of heart as the winters are long and brutal, and the extreme time shifts can represent everything from nearly all light, or all dark days. However, for those willing to put up with a few rugged features there is nothing else that can compare to Alaska for senior living.
Costs of Alaska Assisted Living
Alaska does not report as extensively on its elderly care and senior living as other states in the continental United States. It is partly due to how remote the state is in comparison to the rest of the nation. Additionally, the state has far fewer licensed assisted living facilities compared to other states.
The average cost for a room in assisted living home in Alaska is approximately $5,820 per month. It is far higher than the national average which sits just at $4,000 per month. In fact, Alaska’s senior living costs are nearly 45 percent higher than comparable units in the continental U.S.
Fairbanks represents the costliest place for assisted living. The typical one room rent is between $4,300 and $8,000 per month. However, it should be noted that some of these extraordinarily higher priced assisted living complexes are few and far between.
In general, rooms fall much closer to $4,000 to $6,000 per month, with the best selection and affordable options located in Anchorage.
Geographic location and lack of qualified elderly care facilities in most of Alaska’s massive interior play a large role in driving the senior housing costs up.
Alaska has under 1 million residents, and its growth remains stagnant. For comparison, Hawaii (the other non-continental U.S. state) has nearly twice the population.
Paying for Assisted Living in Alaska
Sometimes, it is hard for a family to cover assisted living costs. Because caregivers are involved in the day-to-day care of seniors, assisted living facilities in Alaska are much more expensive than other types of senior living that are more independent. There are 2 waivers in the state of Alaska that can help pay for senior living, but they do not both cover assisted living communities. The Alaskans Living Independently Waiver and Adults with Physical Disabilities Waiver can help with monthly assisted living rent in the state of Alaska. Denali Care (Medicaid in Alaska) can also help with medical costs, though this waiver will generally not apply to an assisted living facility.
Types of Assisted Living in Alaska
There are 3 types of assisted living facilities in Alaska. Depending on the senior’s needs, a certain type of facility should be chosen over another.
Social Security Supported: For those not chronically mentally ill but need monitoring.
Supportive Living Facilities (DDMN): For those with mental health concerns or requesting more hands-on treatment.
General (DU) Facilities: For seniors requesting basic assisted living care, or for those with a physical disability.
