What Is Supportive Living?
Learn the difference between Supportive Living and Assisted Living.
St. Francis Woods residents have the luxury of living independently in their own private apartment. This helps promote self-sufficiency while still having nursing care and other supportive services when needed. We provide our residents with three meals a day plus snacks, housekeeping and laundry services, social interaction, health and wellness activities, medication assistance, and so much more.
Supportive living provides a solution to the growing need for affordable housing for today’s senior (age 65 or better) who does not yet need a nursing home but could benefit from a little extra help. The main difference between assisted living and supportive living is how it's financed.
Supportive Living Facilities Accept Medicaid
Whereas assisted living is strictly private pay, St. Francis Woods accepts Medicaid as payment. The Supportive Living program 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. For those who are able to pay privately, we offer the option of a smooth transition from private pay to Medicaid so no resident has to leave their home at St. Francis Woods due to running low on personal funds.
