When help at home is not feasible, Assisting Living is another way to provide senior housing options that are alternatives to nursing home care.
The Assisted Living Waiver Program pays the costs of care in an Assisted Living facility. The consumer is responsible for "room and board" expenses.
Participants must be financially eligible for Medicaid and determined by COAAA to need a "nursing facility level of care," the same requirements as for our PASSPORT program.
