Although assisted living is primarily private pay, there are other options that may be available to the family as well.
One option is the Group Adult Foster Care program. GAFC is sponsored jointly through Mass Health and Department of Social Security. Residents that are found to be clinically eligible and meet certain criteria for assets and income may qualify for this program. Give us a call for more details or visit www.mass.gov/elderaffairs.com for a copy of the Assisted Living Consumer Guide for more information.
Funding assistance may also be available to Veterans and their spouses thru the Aide and Attendance program sponsored by the Department of Veteran’s affairs. A veteran’s eligibility is determined based on dates and length of service, those that were honorably discharged and have asset and income limitations. Call us for more information/forms or information and application forms can be found at: www.va.gov
