Pompano Beach Assisted Living Financial Assistance
Pompano Beach seniors who have a low income and few countable assets may be eligible for enrollment in the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-term Care Program. This Medicaid program helps frail seniors remain in a noninstitutional setting by funding additional services and supports that enable seniors to stay in an assisted living community rather than a nursing home. These services are assigned on a case-by-case basis and may include physical and occupational therapy, skilled nursing care, medication administration and medical supplies. Florida also has the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, a community-based managed care program for seniors who meet the criteria for nursing home placement, but there are currently no PACE program sites in Broward County.
