 any longer, a smaller home closer to
your loved ones might be a better choice for you. You will still have the exterior upkeep, or you can look at is as the joy of gardening, and be able to make choic- es based on your interests and needs. Furthermore, if the need for assistance arises you can call on nearby family or other providers to allow you stay in your new home longer.
A listing of independent facilities can be found on page 18.
In-Law Apartment: While it may not be your first choice to move in with a loved one it might be more financially feasible than moving to another location on your own. Yes I mean the, “In-law apartment.” In some areas they are referred to as an Accessory Dwelling Unit or ADU. If you or a loved one owns a single-family home, adding an ADU to an existing home may help you keep your inde- pendence. An ADU is a second living space within a home or on a lot. It has a separate living and sleeping area, a place to cook, and a bathroom. Space like an upper floor, basement, attic, or over a
garage have been turned into an ADU. Family members may be interested in living in an ADU in your home, or you may want to build a separate living space at a family member’s home.
Check with your local zoning office to be sure ADUs are allowed in your area and find out if there are special rules. The cost for an ADU can vary widely de- pending on the size and cost of building materials and workers.
Subsidized Senior Housing: There are state and federal programs that help pay for housing for older adults with low to moderate incomes. Some of these housing programs also offer help with meals and other activities like housekeep- ing, shopping, and doing the laundry. Residents usually live in their own apart- ments within an apartment building. Rent payments are based on income. Rent will not exceed 30 percent of your monthly income. Long waiting lists are typical for subsidized housing in some areas. Many of the in-home services described in the previous section are also available to people living in subsidized senior housing.
Services Out of the Home
Adult Day Care Services: This program is for individuals who need daytime supervision and social activities. Adult day care can provide respite care outside your home. It is helpful to family caregivers who work or who simply need a break from caregiving. Costs may be met through agencies in your community if you qualify, or services will be provided through private-pay. PACE programs offer adult day services as part of the enroll- ment in their program.
Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE): PACE is a Medicare and Medicaid program offered in many states that allows people who otherwise need a nursing home-level of care to remain in the community. Part
of their time may be spent in the day facility and then the balance of their day at home.
To qualify for PACE, you must meet these conditions:
