San Diego Assisted Living Financial Assistance

California’s Medicaid system, also known as Medi-Cal, helps cover the cost of long-term care for seniors age 65 and above. However, the program only includes in-home personal assistance that is either medical, assisted living or adult day care. For any other services, seniors must apply for a Medi-Cal waiver through the Assisted Living Waiver Program (ALWP) to help them cover long-term care assistance with personal care and household tasks. These services may include help with activities of daily living, housekeeping, laundry and transportation to medical appointments.

Learn more about the ALWP, the eligibility requirements and application process at our Assisted Living in California page.
