Shostack Publisher: Charles C Thomas Publisher, Limited Date Published: January ISBN: Click below to buy the book [Book price/availability varies]. Senior board and care homes have their own advantages and disadvantages. Some advantages that make them ideal for many include the following: Residents live in a homey environment. Unlike nursing homes or assisted living apartments, board and care facilities are oftentimes situated in an actual house. They are integrated into the community, in.

Residential care is very cost effective as well, on the average about half the cost of nursing home care. The cost of residential care for an elderly person can range from $2, to $5, a month, depending on the care needs, the quality of the accommodations and the location of the facility. In , The Martin Avenue Apartments will undergo a renovation and expansion of our affordable living facilities, thanks to an award of $24 million dollars of Low Income Housing Tax Credits from the Illinois Housing Development funds will also allow us to upgrade our programs, so we can continue to provide the best housing value and services for low-income seniors.   Another possibility for elders is a residential care home, also known as RCFE (residential care facility for the elderly), adult day home, board-and-care home, or personal care home. These small group settings provide basic services (usually meals and light assistance) at a much lower cost than typical assisted living communities or nursing homes. Group homes or adult family homes for the disabled are another option for persons needing specialized care. A group home provides housing and meals, and may provide other activities to residents, such as field trips, sports activities, and transportation services to medical appointments, shopping and entertainment activities.

  As noted on the website, “A key goal of the program was to enable low-income, Medi-Cal eligible seniors and persons with disabilities, who would otherwise require nursing facility services, to remain in or relocate to a community setting in a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE) or public subsidized housing.”.   PACE - The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly This program provides financial assistance for care for seniors who would otherwise require nursing home care. PACE is only available in certain areas of some states, and eligibility is restricted to low-income seniors who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. The Office on Aging Information & Assistance Call Center is available to answer your questions on and link you to services for older adults, family caregivers, and persons with disabilities.
