Assisted Living Options for Low-Income Elders (Last Updated: February 4, 2020)

Assisted living facilities are an excellent option for elderly adults who are no longer able to live alone in their home, but don’t require the around-the-clock care provided in a nursing home. Unfortunately, it can be incredibly challenging for elders and their families to find affordable assisted living. The high cost associated with many assisted living communities can cause a huge financial strain for many people, but especially for those individuals with lower incomes.

Fortunately, various forms of financial assistance to help cover the cost of assisted living are available for those who qualify. But for many individuals, the process of determining which forms of assistance they’re eligible for and exactly what it covers can be a long and confusing process.

While the costs of assisted living and the financial assistance available for low-income elders vary from state to state, there are resources available for seniors across the country. Read on to learn about some options that can help you or your loved pay for assisted living.
