The Brennity at Daphne

Review by Audrey | Consumer

The Brennity at Daphne is sort of an upscale assisted living community. It's very well-decorated, clean, and it smelled good. The food is pretty good. It's where my mom ended up going so I have eaten there several times now. It kind of fluctuates. Sometimes it's really good, but other times it's not. Someone comes in t...

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Daphne

Medicaid in Alabama

Alabama’s Medicaid program provides health insurance to low-income residents including aged, blind and disabled persons. It covers a broad range of health care services including doctor visits, hospital inpatient and outpatient care, diagnostic testing and prescription medications. As in most states, Alabama’s Medicaid plan is administered by the state but jointly funded and regulated by the federal government. 

To qualify for the state Medicaid plan as a senior, applicants must be 65 years of age or older. Financial requirements stipulate that single applicants can have a maximum income of $791 per month and up to $2,000 in countable assets. Married applicants are allowed a maximum income of $1,177 per month and up to $3,000 in assets. Although all income counts, some assets don’t, such as an applicant’s home providing it’s occupied, a single vehicle and personal belongings such as jewelry and household furnishings. 

To apply for Medicaid, Daphne residents can visit the Mobile Medicaid office at 2800 Dauphin Street, Suite 105, or call (866) 371-4078.

Alabama Community Transition Waiver

Alabama’s ACT waiver provides assistance for seniors and disabled persons to transition from a nursing facility back into their home or an assisted living facility. In addition to covering transition and moving costs, this waiver covers other services such as case management, nurse visits and necessary medical equipment and supplies.

The program is available to Alabama residents of all ages, provided they live in a nursing facility and are capable of transitioning into a community setting that provides a lower level of care. Any senior who wishes to take advantage of the waiver program must be assessed to determine if they can reside in the community safely with the provided services and support. They must also meet the program’s financial requirements of a monthly income below $2,313 and a maximum of $2,000 in countable assets. 

To apply for this waiver, individuals can contact the Alabama Department of Senior Services at (800) 243-5463.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Optional State Supplementation

Alabama’s OSS program provides a cash benefit to aged, blind and disabled individuals who require long-term care. This monthly payment can be used to cover assisted living facility expenses that aren’t paid by the state Medicaid plan and its waivers.  To qualify for OSS payments, applicants must receive or be eligible for federal Supplemental Security Income benefits.

To learn more or to apply for SSI or OSS benefits, seniors can contact the Social Security Administration at (800) 772-1213. 

Elderlife Bridge Loan

Seniors who are unable to cover the upfront costs associated with moving to an assisted living facility may find a short-term solution with a bridge loan from Elderlife Financial Services. These loans can be applied for online or by phone, and approval decisions and access to funds often take place within one business day. Elderlife loans have repayment terms of up to 24 months, which allows a senior ample time to arrange a long-term source of assisted living funding.

For more information or to apply, Daphne seniors can call (888) 228-4500 or complete an application online
