Assisted Living is a great option for many people wishing to retain a sense of community and self-sufficiency. The Assisted Living Medicaid Waiver program is designed to promote independence and improve physical and social well-being by providing participants with individualized care and assistance with housing, personal care and healthcare services.

To be eligible for Assisted Living you must:
- Be 21 years of age or older

- Be able to pay a monthly room and board payment

Community Transition Service Funding
There are designated funds available to enrollees leaving a nursing facility and relocating to an Assisted Living Facility. These funds are used to purchase household furnishing supplies and incidentals not provided by the facility, or formal/informal supports.
