Beloved Senior Living has been a God send for my mom. I have never seen a facility with this caliber before. The place so super clean! The food is home cooked and delicious! The staff are so loving and personable with the patients. I am able to reach them at any time of day. Heather, the Administrator is professional and takes a personal interest in each patient to ensure they are clean and well cared for. My mother is always smiling, always clean and comfortable. That is so important to me. I thank God everyday for leading us to this amazing facility!! I sleep well every night because I know my sweet mother is in the best place we could have ever imagined. Blessed beyond measure.

Had a wonderful tour with Ashley. This is a great community. Went looking for my father who has dementia and felt so welcome. The warmth and vitality of the community made me and my family feel like this would be the perfect choice.

I moved from upstate NY to Melbourne and chose Parasol sight unseen. I dealt with Haley to choose my apt. I couldn't be happier with all the amenities, staff and fellow residents.

12 directors in 12 years sums it up. Management is unresponsive. Residents have been having buffet dinners for over two weeks and food quality is poor. Physical plant is starting to go downhill. Outside needs to be cleaned and repainted. The only positive is the overworked housekeeping staff who have kept the interiors clean while everything around them falls apart.

I went to Victoria Landing. It was all very positive, and she answered all my questions. It's clean, and the residents seemed happy. I saw them walking around and eating breakfast, and I talked to a few of them. The dining seems to be good. They have a pool, so they can swim. It's right on the river, so they can go fishing. Every month they have a calendar with tons of activities for them to do. The doctors go there, and they can get a haircut there. It seemed that they have a lot of personal care involved. It's beautiful, it's right on the river, it's very nice, and it's a place where people could feel calm and look at the water.

I stayed at Sonata Viera. They got money to apparently fix up the interior, but they used all the money on the public areas and none on the apartments, which could've used some help. Overall, I did not like it. The food was horrible. They had a cook who didn't know how to cook. We had no choices really on the menu, and he would make something and run out of food because he didn't make enough, and people would end up having to eat a sandwich or something. The food was crap. The working staff was very nice and very kind, but undertrained, and overworked. I would give the management staff a two out of five. They had bingo and that was about it. They had no amenities. They had a barber shop, but I didn't use it. The problem they had was their parking lot was way far away from the door, and they had quite a few people living there who still drove cars, and they didn't have enough parking spaces. It was just not real thought out at all. They should get new management. They're obviously in it for the money. Everything was cut corners. They just didn't really care about what went on inside.

I visited this facility

I toured The Brennity at Melbourne. It was beautiful and a very large facility. It's a hotel style facility with individual rooms and 2 dining rooms that you could choose from. It had several sitting areas inside where residents could play games and watch TV. It also had outside sitting areas, and a garden. My two choices were between The Brennity and the other community. We chose the other one just cause the way the other community was setup. Their staff was as attentive as the ones from the other community. I tried to get my mom to the side between the two styles of facilities, and she wouldn't make the decision so I made it for her. They looked like they have what the other community has, they have a lot of things for the residents to do.

I visited this facility

I visited Titusville, that place was bad. I think it's a dump, and it might be the income level, they may not be paying they're staff enough to care. There's probably people working there that do not get a reason for income, and so they're getting people working there that aren't motivated because they're not getting paid. I think that's probably optimally what happens in those places, they're not paying their employees a good wage, so it's hard to probably retain good employees for them. I did not have a positive experience with Titusville Rehab. The place stunk really, really bad, it stunk real bad, it smelled real bad. The staff doesn't do anything unless you ask them.

I visited Crescent Wood. They were called something else back then. I visited probably within the last three years, about two and a half years ago. I went to both independent and assisted living there. The independent living, the little apartments and everything, they're nice, but they could use a little better maintenance and upkeep as far as on the outside. But in size, they're fairly nice. I mean, they're a little bit aged, a lot of people moved in and out. It's fairly OK. The assisted living part, it was a little, I guess, it was smelly to me; there was a heavy smell, though I don't know if it's in all those places or if it's just that particular place. I had an uncle that stayed there for two years. He went from independent living to assisted living, until completely rehab. The little pricey rooms or independent living if you wanna call them, they're like a little efficiency apartment, and they're pretty nice. My mother said she wouldn't mind going there because my uncle had stayed there, and it's right down the street from where my mother lives now. She used to go visit her brother there, that's why she said, "That place is kinda nice, I wouldn't mind staying there.'' They have cable TV, they have games, and people visiting. If you're independent, you could probably drive in and out all you wanted. The little apartments have a little parking lot in front of them. They do have people come in, I would say for what do you call it manicures, pedicures, hair service. They have a bus that takes them if they wanna go to the movies or shopping. We lived a way from main street, so if you wanna do anything you actually have to drive about ten, fifteen miles to get anywhere. Movies are close by, we have movies, and we have grocery stores and stuff, but if they wanna go to a shopping center and a nice one, they would have to go for a drive. They have buses there for transportation, and I think they take you if you need help for medicine, if you need a doctor's visit, they're very good in helping their population with that. I've tried the food there, sometimes it's good, and sometimes it's not.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Brevard County

Medicaid in Florida

Medicaid is a joint state-federal program that provides low-income, low-asset children, adults and seniors with access to limited health services. Medicaid benefits may include assistance with Medicare copays, deductibles and some services not covered by Medicare. 

In Florida, seniors aged 65 and older need to meet specific financial requirements to qualify for Medicaid programs. Individual applicants can earn no more than $2,313 per month and hold no more than $2,000 in countable assets, while couples applying together can make no more than $4,626 per month and own no more than $3,000 in countable assets. 

For Medicaid, countable assets include cash, bank account balances, stocks, bonds and investment real estate. Excluded assets include clothing, furniture, one vehicle and a primary residence worth less than $585,000. 

Florida residents 65 or older who qualify for Medicaid may be eligible to receive additional funding for assisted living through the Florida Statewide Medicaid Managed Care, Long-Term Care Program

The goal of the SMMC LTC is to reduce the rate of nursing home placement in Florida by providing disabled adults and seniors with the supports they need to remain in their own home or live in an assisted living facility. 

Seniors cannot use SMMC LTC benefits for the room-and-board portion of assisted living costs, but these benefits can be used for personal care services a senior needs in order to reside in an assisted living environment.

To learn more about the SMMC LTC, contact the Florida Elder Helpline at (800) 963-5337 or phone the Agency for Health Care Administration at (877) 711-3662. 

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Optional State Supplementation

The Florida Optional State Supplementation program is a statewide Supplemental Security Income top-up program that can provide seniors with additional funds for the room-and-board portion of assisted living costs. 

Low-income seniors aged 65 and older who are unable to live independently as a result of physical or mental deterioration or a disability may be eligible for OSS funds. The maximum monthly OSS SSI top-up for Florida seniors who reside in an assisted living facility is $78.40 for a single applicant and $156.80 for a couple. 

Veterans Aid and Attendance Program

Honorably discharged veterans and their survivors may be eligible to receive a monthly pension top-up benefit that can be used toward assisted living costs if they have a life-limiting disability or chronic illness. 

To be eligible for this program, applicants must currently receive, or be eligible to receive, the regular VA pension. Note that veterans who are on the VA disability pension are excluded from the Aid and Attendance Program

Qualified applicants must meet at least one of the following conditions: 

 

 

  • Require daily assistance from a caregiver to complete one or more activities of daily living, such as feeding, dressing, bathing, toileting or managing a prosthetic device
  • Have corrected vision in both eyes that tests at 5/200 or worse
  • Suffer from a permanent concentric contraction of the visual field to 5 degrees or worse
  • Be largely bedridden as a result of a disability or disabilities
  • Live in a nursing home as a result of a deterioration of mental or physical abilities



  • Note that veterans who have previously been denied a VA pension due to excess income may be eligible for a pension under the increased rates provided through the Aid and Attendance program. 

    Veterans Housebound Allowance

    The VA Housebound Allowance is a monthly pension top-up program available to veterans and survivors. To qualify, applicants must have a 100 percent disability rating under VA assessment criteria and be largely confined to their primary residence as a direct result of their disability or disabilities. 

    Note that for both the Aid and Attendance Program and the Housebound Allowance, disabilities do not need to be linked to military service. Applicants may be granted benefits under only one of these two programs, even if they meet the criteria for both pension top-ups. 

    For more information on the VA Aid and Attendance and VA Housebound Allowance, contact the Melbourne Vet Center at (321) 254-3410.
