Assisted Living

Assisted living combines a home-like setting with personal support services to provide more intensive care than is available through home care services. Assisted living facilities provide individuals with an alternative to nursing facility care that is both less expensive and less restrictive. The Assisted Living Waiver Program pays a set rate to the Medicaid certified assisted living facility for those who qualify. The individual is responsible for paying a “room & board” rate and a possible patient liability amount depending on the individual’s income.

To be eligible for the Assisted Living Waiver program, you must be all of the following:

  • You are age 21 or older
  • You meet Nursing Home level of care (Assistance with activites of daily living) 
  • You meet financial requirements for assets/income 
  • You have physician's approval 

Services that are available include:

  • Meals
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Transportation
  • Social Activites
  • Personal Care like bathing, grooming and personal hygiene
  • Nursing Care like medication administration
