Independent and Assisted Living costs are influenced by several factors, location (city or state), including the level of care and service packages.

Cost of Independent Living in Surprise
The monthly rent for Independent Living apartments varies depending on the apartment's size and floor plan. In some instances, there may be an additional fee for apartments located in a particular campus area or with a desirable view. The monthly rent covers a range of services and amenities, including meals, housekeeping, scheduled transportation, security, and more.
Some Independent Living communities provide in-home health services that residents can add to their monthly plan. These supportive services can assist residents with medication reminders, shower assistance, laundry, and more, particularly if they require additional help after a hospital stay or surgery.

Cost Factors for Assisted Living in Surprise
The cost of Assisted Living in the Surprise metro area averages just over $4,700 per month, though pricing structures may vary depending on the community.
In Assisted Living, the monthly fee typically depends on the level of care required by the resident. Some communities utilize a 'point system' to calculate the monthly fee, while others establish a flat monthly rate for each level of care. Before admission, an assessment with the Assisted Living Manager is completed to determine the resident's particular needs.
For example, at The Oasis Assisted Living in Surprise, we offer three levels of Assisted Living services: Supervisory, Personal, and Direct Care, each with a flat monthly rate.
For families with long-term care insurance, their policies may cover some, all, or none of their monthly fees in Assisted Living. As each policy is unique, we strongly suggest consulting with your agent to clarify the benefits of your specific plan.
While we cannot verify benefits on your behalf, we are happy to provide the documentation required by your insurance carrier to confirm benefit payments. Typically, carriers ask the facility to complete a questionnaire and provide a copy of their state license.
