The Aid and Attendance benefit is one of these programs and can provide eligible U.S. Military Veterans and their spouses over $2,600 of monthly, tax-free income, which can help cover the costs of their senior care. Eligibility can be determined in less than 5 minutes by reviewing wartime dates, discharge type, care needs, income, and assets.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Arbor Terrace Naperville, we acknowledge that the cost is a critical factor when considering your senior living options. To address any questions you may have about senior living costs in Naperville, we’ve compiled these FAQs:

Does Medicare cover the cost of senior assisted living in Illinois?

Medicare in Illinois does not cover the non-medical care expenses associated with assisted living. Medicare typically only covers a short-term stay in a skilled nursing or rehabilitation community while an older adult is recovering from an illness or injury. It can also cover in-home rehab care performed by a home health nurse or therapist.

What is the cost of memory care in Illinois?

Memory care costs are generally 20-30% higher than assisted living costs. Memory care can be an expensive commitment, but it's worth the spend. The average monthly rate for a memory care facility in Illinois is around $5,000 or $60,000 per year, but pricing can vary widely depending on the location and level of dementia care that is needed.

Is there a buy-in fee?

You won’t have to worry about a buy-in fee when you choose Arbor Terrace Naperville. Instead, you pay for the services you need when you need them, month by month.

Happy Birthday, Barbie!


Happy 65th Birthday, Barbie! The doll made its debut at the American International Toy Fair in New York City on March 9, 1959. This date is also used as Barbie's official birthday. Barbie’s inventor, Ruth Handler, named the doll after her daughter Barbara. On her birthday, we learned the history behind Barbie, and Christine, our engagement coordinator, shared a small part of her collection with some of our residents. They really enjoyed it!
