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 2020, the Masonic Home provided $917,816 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.
I remember my father once telling my mother that she didn’t need to worry about their future. What a blessing it was for them to know that all of you were there for them. We will be ever grateful for the work of the Masonic Home on behalf of our parents. Thank you all so very much for your role in making their lives better.”
“The help from the Home was a true miracle. We did not know what we were going to do as Mom’s situation changed so suddenly. Mom’s injury was a really hard time for her and for the family. The help from the Home was a lifesaver. It was such a shock that after such a hard time, good things started to happen.”
“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.”
“I have the feeling of having been blessed by angels. You who are members of the Board probably do not think of yourselves as angels, but I do. Many blessing to you all.”
“I’m so proud of my Masonic affiliation and the help I receive. My first husband was a Mason, my second husband was a Mason and that’s the only way I would have it. They were such good men. My sons were in DeMolay and I was in the Order of the Eastern Star. I wish more people knew about the Masonic Home of Missouri and how much help they have given me.”
