Lakeland Assisted Living Financial Assistance

Low-income seniors who need help paying for assisted living may receive assistance through the Florida Assisted Living for the Elderly Waiver (ALE). This waiver is managed by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs. It helps pay for necessities including grooming, housekeeping, medication administration and meals for those who prefer to live independently in an assisted living community rather than in a nursing home. To be eligible, seniors must be at least 60 years old and meet the financial requirements for Medicaid.

To learn more about the ALE, including how to apply and additional requirements, visit our Assisted Living in Florida page.
