Supportive living communities

Residents receive assistance with their daily living activities such as dressing, bathing, and medication reminders. Meals, housekeeping, transportation, activities, and utilities are also included. The communities offer many common areas for residents to gather and enjoy one another’s company. This is a viable community option for those who have some private pay funds but cannot afford private pay assisted living rates for a sustained amount of time. When funds reach $2000, the community will assist the resident in applying for Medicaid.

The resident remains in their new apartment home and the only change they experience is in their payment structure. The community will request the resident’s Social Security check and leave the resident with $90 each month.

Senior Living Experts will help you protect the future care of your loved one by preparing early when funds are depleting and care needs are on the horizon

SLFs options

  • Get referrals for Elder Law Attorneys who can help you apply for Medicaid, as well as helping to implement the Spousal Impoverishment Act (if applicable to your situation)
