It is a type of senior care that allows older adults to live independently in their own accommodation, but with 24-hour staff available to provide personal care and support services as needed. These services can include help with the activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, eating, dressing, and taking medication. Assisted living communities also offer lifestyle services, such as meals, housekeeping, transportation, and social activities. The cost of assisted living depends on the level of care, the size and location of the accommodation, and the amenities and features of the community.

Many Veterans do not realize that they may be eligible for benefits from the Veterans Administration.
The Aid and Attendance benefit is a non-service connected pension benefit for Veterans or spouses who need assistance with the activities of daily living, such as bathing, feeding, grooming and dressing.
An individual residing in assisted living is generally presumed to be in need of aid and attendance.
To qualify, the Veteran must be 65 years of age or older and must have had 90 days in service, one day of which must have been during a period of war.
Even if the Veteran never left the United States, he may still qualify as long as he meets these service requirements. In addition, the Veteran must have been discharged under conditions other than dishonorable. The Veteran must qualify financially for Aid and Attendance benefits.
A surviving spouse may be entitled to a Veteran’s pension provided she was married to the Veteran at the time of the Veteran’s death.
Our community has partnered with a veteran care coordination company that assists Veterans and their spouses in enrolling into the Aid & Attendance program administered through the Veterans Administration.

Long Term Care
When considering assisted living for yourself or your loved one, cost can be one of the most important factors in the decision-making process.
As you look into finding the best fit for you or your loved one, you will need to know how you will pay for the community and if programs like Medicaid can help with the costs.
In the State of Florida, Medicaid can be used to help pay for some of the costs of the assisted living community if you or your loved one has limited income.
Medicaid is designed to help seniors pay for healthcare when they are unable to pay for it themselves.
