What Is Supportive Living?

Learn the difference between Supportive Living and Assisted Living.

Supportive living provides an alternative solution to the growing need for affordable housing for today’s seniors 65 or better who does not need a nursing home but could benefit from a little extra help. The main difference between assisted living and supportive living is money.

Residents have the luxury of living in their own private apartment independently, being self-sufficient as long as possible while still having nursing care and other supportive services as needed. St. Francis Woods provides our residents with three meals a day plus snacks, housekeeping and laundry services, social interaction, health and wellness activities for heart, mind and body, medication assistance, assistance with setting up transportation, and so much more.

Supportive Living Facilities Accept Medicaid

Whereas assisted living is strictly private pay, we accept Medicaid. Supportive living is designed to offer residents who qualify, the opportunity to pay through a combination of their own social security income and Medicaid benefits when unable to pay privately. Furthermore, this also means once you have exhausted all your funds, you do not have to leave your home.
