Long-Term Financial Assistance

The Long-Term Financial Assistance Program assists eligible senior adults who do not have adequate income and assets available to pay the entire cost of their care needs and living expenses. Individuals may receive assistance whether they reside in their homes, apartments, independent living facilities, or assisted living facilities.

In addition to individual assistance, our team can help explain the types of long-term assistance care available.
