Long-Term Financial Assistance
The Long-Term Financial Assistance Program assists eligible senior adults who do not have income or assets available to cover the costs 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 Fiscal Year 2018, the Masonic Home provided $926,513 of long-term financial assistance.
Examples of monthly assistance include:
Help with the cost of assisted and independent living
Quality of life items in a skilled facility
Essential household bills and expenses
Individuals who qualify for long-term financial assistance are senior Missouri Masons, their wives or widows, and Eastern Star ladies in good standing.
Applicants must complete an application to demonstrate a financial need.

“You have been a great help to my dad. Our family has many miles between each other, literally and sometimes figuratively too. Our relationship with my father was not the greatest, especially when we were young. Your involvement has opened a door with him that I am not sure he would have opened, if not for necessity. Thank you for everything that you do.”
“Just celebrated my 90th birthday. Thank you for everything you do for me. I appreciate it more than I can say.”
“I love what the Masonic Home has provided for me. Without their assistance I wouldn’t have this lovely apartment or get to here I feel safe and comfortable.”
“Knowing my mom is well taken care of has given the family a peace of mind. I feel that we are part of a team with the Masonic Home and that my mom is being well taken care of. She is comfortable, content and cared for. I have no idea where mom would be right now if the assistance that the Home provides for had not been available.”
“The process for applying for assistance went very smoothly. I would say it was easy really. A little paperwork was involved but nothing overwhelming. What was overwhelming was the kindness and cooperation from the Home during this stage in all our lives. It was like a weight was lifted off of our shoulders. I don’t know how we could ever say “thank you” enough.”
