Assisted Living Financial Assistance
At Chelsea assisted living communities we understand that seniors may be facing financial challenges. We are wholly committed to offering alternative programs which may assist those in need.
You’re a life saver! Thank you for providing us with the necessary veterans benefit program information. I know we couldn’t have managed the cost without it.
Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit Program – The Aid and Attendance benefit is a federal benefit provided through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Eligible combat veterans and surviving spouses of combat veterans can receive money to help with living expenses. It is recommended that a third party provider assist you in applying for this benefit.
Shared Apartments – When considering moving into an assisted living residence, seniors and their families may have concerns about finances. Some may also have concerns about living alone. Shared apartments offer an ideal solution.
Assisted Living Program (New York State ALP) – The ALP (Assisted Living Program) is operated for the purpose of providing care, room, board, housekeeping, personal care, supervision, and home health care services. An ALP is jointly approved to operate by the Department of Social Services and the Department of Health. All ALPs are additionally licensed by the New York State Department of Health as an enriched housing program or adult home. All ALPs are also are licensed as LHCSA (Licensed Home Care Services Agency) to provide home care services and must be contracted with a CHHA (Certified Home Care Agency) to provide nursing care services. The New York State Department of Health has awarded assisted living program (ALP) beds in Castle Senior Living at Forest Hills.
