Sarasota Assisted Living Financial Assistance

Seniors who have a low income, few assets and who need help covering their assisted living costs may qualify for the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-term Care Program. This managed care program is open to Medicaid-eligible seniors who require the level of care normally provided in a nursing home setting, but who would prefer to reside in a noninstitutional setting, such as an assisted living facility. Alternatively, Florida seniors who need medical and nonmedical care can sign up for the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, a community-based managed care program.

Learn more about these programs, plus who is eligible, on our Assisted Living in Florida page.
