It’s easy to confuse assisted living with supportive living.
While they seem similar, there are key differences between these two types of residential care for seniors and their families.
Supportive Living offers a homey setting that is tailored to the needs of each individual resident; this means it may provide personal assistance or have programs like socialization activities on-site every day!
Financial safety nets are why supportive living communities are such an asset to seniors, their families, and Illinois communities.
The biggest difference between Assisted Living and Supportive Living is that licensed Supportive Living communities can accept Medicaid Waivers for Residents who qualify and need the related financial assistance and are age 65 and older.
While Assisted Living amenities may vary and come at an additional cost, all Illinois Supportive Living communities come with most amenities included in one flat rate. These include daily full breakfast, lunch and dinner, housekeeping, social, educational, and wellness activities, assistance with bathing and dressing, medication management, and scheduled transportation.
Residents enjoy private apartments (studio or one bedroom) with us. You or your loved one will have access to recreational rooms, beauty and barber services, and relaxing outdoor spaces.”
There are different types of supportive living; including communities that care for persons living with disabilities, others that care exclusively for seniors, and some residences that care for both.
We provide a safe and caring community for seniors age 65 and older who need some assistance with activities of daily living.
If you need assistance with paying for your care at our community, we can assist you with an application for Illinois Long-term Care Medicaid.
In general, talking to your local supportive living community is the best way to find out their specific qualifications.
