Are there assisted living facilities in CA that will offer financial assistance?

We are looking for an assisted living facility for our father, but he has limited funds available. We can sell his house and he receives a small amount for Social Security, but we aren't sure how long that will last him. Do you know of any facilities that will offer financial assistance once he has depleted all of his funds?

There are a few AL communities that are on a program called “ALWP” – Assisted Living Waiver Program. They are part of the Medi-Cal test offerings. The issue is that the father would have to qualify for Medi-Cal FIRST and then be eligible for the ALWP. There are very few properties that participate and it is difficult to get approved in the state, so it’s almost better to go into the right community while there are funds and spend down….THEN apply for the programs once you he is able to qualify.

You can find out more about the ALWP on the Medical website.
