Supportive living provides an alternative solution to the growing need for affordable housing. Supportive living is ideal for today's seniors 65 or older who do not 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. Whereas assisted living is strictly private pay, supportive living facilities like Saint Francis Woods 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.
Residents have the luxury of living in an apartment independently and being self-sufficient as long as possible while still having nursing care and other supportive services as needed.
Residents have their own private apartment, three meals a day plus snacks, housekeeping and laundry services (if needed), social interaction, health and wellness activities for heart, mind and body, medication assistance, assistance with setting up transportation, and so much more.
If you are 65 or older and need help with medications, meal preparations, housekeeping or laundry assistance you may qualify. Every possible admission undergoes a pre-admission screening to see if you qualify.
