Supportive Living Facility (SLF) Status
Brookstone's Tuscola community is one of seven Brookstone facilities that have been designated to participate in the Illinois Supportive Living Facility (SLF) program, which is the state’s Medicaid waiver program. The SLF designation allows residents eligible for nursing home care to take advantage of their Medicaid benefits even though they don’t need or want skilled nursing services. The SLF program pays 60 percent of the state’s nursing rates — so close to the private-pay rates at Brookstone that the program is almost like an insurance policy for occupancy. Broo
