Affordable Housing

Finding cheap affordable housing usually comes at a cost. Location, crime, maintenance, etc... will probably be problematic. The solutions to these problems is costly too. We suggest weighing these problems and pay accordingly. For instance you might pay more to live in a more secure area. However for some people living in a secure area is not a priority. So their living conditions and payments will be different. Hopefully you can use the resources on this page or find other resources that save you time an money.


Medical insurance is expensive and is another big expense for seniors. Medicare can be great when doctors take medicare(HMO, PPO). However even if a Doctor takes medicare, your prescription drugs probably are not covered unless you have medicare part D, which is another expense. We suggest the following: Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is a program offered through medicare that might help you financially.What is PACE? It  is a Medicare and Medicaid program that helps people meet their health care needs in the community instead of going to a nursing home or other care facility. So how can this program help me save money? By meeting your health care needs in the community. No nursing home or care facility. Please click the PACE link below to learn more.



Healthcare is another big expense. Knowing yourself and what you need matters a lot. Even knowing yourself and what you need may not be enough though. Making the most with what you have is sometimes the best you can do. If healthcare was your only concern you probably could get one of the best plans out there. Unfortunately it is not. There are multiple factors that go into the decisions we make not just one. Thus, we have put together some resources on this page in hope that they might be helpful to you.
