Brookdale Fairfield's rooms were OK but weren't as big nor as nice as that of their sister community. We ate in a private dining room, and the food was OK. The portions were pretty small, but that's what the older generation prefers. I thought they were fine, and I didn't have negative feelings there.Read more The Village at Rancho Solano reviews

Medicaid is a national health plan that provides low-income children, adults with disabilities, pregnant women and seniors with access to essential health services. It’s funded through the federal and state governments and administered at the state level.
All Medicaid programs must include certain mandatory benefits, such as:
Individual states may also offer optional Medicaid benefits, such as:
Qualify for Long-term Medical
In California, the Medicaid program is called Medi-Cal, and seniors need to meet the following income and asset limits to qualify for long-term care coverage:
Some assets are excluded from these limits, including:
Medi-Cal Share of Cost
Seniors who have assets that fall within the Medi-Cal limits but are deemed ineligible for enrollment due to excess income may be able to enroll through a Share of Cost agreement.
Also referred to as a Medicaid spend-down program, SOC is similar to an insurance deductible. Seniors must use a predetermined amount of their excess income on approved medical expenses each month in order to reach their SOC limit. Once they have reached their monthly SOC limit, Medi-Cal coverage is activated for the rest of that month.
It’s important to note that Medi-Cal participants who have a SOC agreement are excluded from Medi-Cal home and community-based waiver programs.
Assisted Living Waiver
The Assisted Living waiver is a Medi-Cal nursing home diversion program for seniors who meet the clinical criteria for nursing home placement and are able to reside in assisted living facility with additional supports. Applications are accepted from seniors who need placement in a long-term care facility as well as from seniors who currently live in a nursing home.
ALW services include adult day programming, personal care, housekeeping, transportation and medication management. Supports include provision of a medical alert system, prepared meals and snacks and individual case management.
ALW services are delivered in specific assisted living facilities that participate in the program, however, the program is statewide. There are currently no placements available in Solano County, so seniors who are accepted must agree to a placement outside of the county.
For more information on Medi-Cal enrollment, the SOC and the ALW, contact the Solano County Public Assistance Department by calling (707) 784-8050.
Optional State Supplementation
Seniors aged 65 and older who qualify for Supplemental Security Income benefits and need to live in an assisted living facility due to physical and/or cognitive limitations may be eligible for the Optional State Supplementation program.
The OSS tops up the monthly federal SSI payment to help seniors pay for their monthly assisted living costs. Single seniors may be provided with up to $1,194.37 in combined monthly OSS/SSI benefits, and couples may receive up to $2,338.74 per month.
For more information on the California OSS program, contact the Social Security Administration at (800) 772-1213.
Elderlife Financial Assisted Living Bridge Loan
Seniors who are selling their home, liquidating assets or waiting for private insurance benefits may qualify for Elderlife Financial’s assisted living bridge loan. This loan is set up as a 12 month open line of credit to give eligible seniors access to interim funds to finance a move into an assisted living facility.
As this is an unsecured loan, applicants must have a high credit score to be approved, and up to six people can be listed on the loan application. There’s no cost to apply, applications can be processed over the phone in about 15 minutes, and a response is usually provided within 24 hours.
Applicants approved have access to the funds immediately. Money from the loan can be sent directly to the assisted living provider, and monthly payments are interest-only based on a prime-plus interest rate. The loan balance can be paid in full at any time without penalty.
For more information, contact Elderlife Financial Services at (888) 228-4500.
