What Does It Take To Become a
Chesapeake Bay Retiree?

Small steps and great ideas.

Each year, Genworth Financial, Inc. conducts an independent survey of average health care costs across the country. This calculator is based on their most recent findings and can give you a basis for planning.

We Can Work It Out. Let’s talk. It could be music to your ears.

These figures do not necessarily represent the cost of care at Westminster-Canterbury on Chesapeake Bay, which can offer a substantial savings over prevailing market rates, especially with Life Care. We are a non-profit organization whose goal is to ensure that residency is available to all qualified individuals, regardless of financial status. If you’d like to discuss the cost of care, just call us at 800-753-2918, or you can also set up a visit so that we can have that discussion in person. Because peace of mind is priceless.

Please note: Research shows that about 70 percent of people age 65 or older will need long-term care services at some point in their lifetime. And while most people think of long-term care as impacting only those in senior years, 40 percent of people currently receiving long term care services are ages 18 to 64.

The Genworth 2012 Cost of Care Survey can help families evaluate options to address the increasing cost of long term care. For the ninth consecutive year, Genworth has surveyed the cost of long term care across the U.S. to help Americans appropriately plan for the potential cost of this type of care in their preferred location and setting. The most comprehensive study of its kind, Genworth's 2012 Cost of Care Survey, conducted by CareScout®, covers nearly 15,300 long term care providers in 437 regions nationwide.

Years You Would Need: Enter the estimated number of years you would require the following health care services.
Home Health: These hourly rates were obtained from licensed (if required by your state) agencies. Typically, a visit from a home health aide lasts longer than an hour. Home health aides assist with activities such as bathing, dressing and toileting.
Assisted Living: Theses rates are for a private room with private bath and typically include at least two meals per day, housekeeping, and personal-care assistance.
Skilled Nursing: These rates were obtained from licensed nursing homes that provide both skilled and custodial care. They are based on a private-pay rate for custodial care, not the Medicare-reimbursed rate.
Inflation Calculations will be adjusted based on the average yearly inflation rate.
