The staff is lovely. It is a small facility that feels more like a home. My father loved the food. It has been a smooth transition with my father during a rough time. I want to thank the staff so much.

You don't need it

The place has no one watching the dementia patients. Theres nothing for them to do. the place is dirty no staff, the rooms need serious cleaning and work done. I would not put a person I dislike in this facility. It is only about the money, not about the patient and that is SAD. Worse mistake ever taking a loved one there. Could not wait till they got out of there.

I chose Jacob\'s tender Loving Care after touring their facility. My mother has severe arthritis in her hips and we could no longer properly care for her. Here\'s why I chose them. I liked that it\'s a small facility with 24/7 nurse and caring staff. It\'s a clean facility, it doesn\'t have that institutionalized smell. We had a private furnished room with closet. All we had to bring were her clothes and personal items. Great food and they made adjustments to suit my mother\'s likes. Very helpful with getting her medications transferred and delivered to her. Liberal visiting hours. They also helped arrange for hospice care. They are easy to work with and answered all our questions and concerns.

Pacifica Senior Living Sunrise was nice. When we went there, they were having renovations so everything was out of place, but the lady who did the tour was very nice, and she was very clear. The location was clean and well organized. If we were thinking of putting my mother into an assisted living, I liked that place for her. It's a very nice place with a good environment. They also had a salon, a library, and lots of activities.

My mother-in-law loves it over at Manor Pines Convalescent Center. I've been there 3-4 times a week, it's very nice. I haven't seen her room yet because they don't let you in all the way, but I've seen the visitor area outside and everything. The building itself is immaculately clean; she said she loves the food, and she's very happy there. The staff would call me or everything, whatever they do; they keep in contact with me so I respect that. The people are very warm.

My husband is at the Grand Villa of Deerfield Beach. I think that they should make available more pull-ups for the men that have accidents. They put on a clean pair of pull-ups in the morning, and they don't leave any extra there. Everybody there has had two shots, so they should get some entertainment in there. I think they are very much lacking in that. Their dining room accommodations are good. They give them a choice with the menu. They come down every day, and my husband feels like he is eating in a restaurant and I love it, that's nice.

Pacifica Senior Living Forest Trace was very, very nice. They have remodelled a lot of their rooms and they're very nice too. Abby toured us and she was excellent, helpful, friendly, very concerned, and full of information. The dining room looked very nice as well. They're just starting to introduce the activities back in slowly, like going to the swimming pool, gym, and hair salon. They also have a doctor and a therapist there, and they have bingo, movie nights, and ice cream socials.

I visited this facility

Five Star Premier Residences of Plantation was very nice, and I felt like I could live there. David was wonderful and very patient with us. There weren't any activities when I visited there in the morning, but before I had seen them eating lunch. They have a beauty parlor, a fitness room, and a bingo room. They pick you up and take you to shopping places, and to your doctor. They have different activities outside, as well as movie nights. Their dining room is nice, and they have room services if you need it, and they offer different things if you don't like what's on the menu.

Care Cost Comparison

The cost of nursing home care in the area is more than double that of any other level of care, and when comparing home care with assisted living, the cost is more than $800 higher. When considering home care, it’s crucial to factor in more than just the increased cost of care and budget for additional expenses associated with remaining in the home, such as rent, utilities and general upkeep.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Broward County

    Medicaid in Florida

    Florida’s Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program provides financial assistance for the cost of long-term care to eligible seniors living in assisted living facilities and other residential care facilities in Broward County and throughout the state. The program offers seniors a variety of social assistance services. The senior’s specific needs determine service delivery, but services may include transportation, nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy.

    Seniors must be 65 years of age or older and complete a comprehensive care assessment to be eligible for this program. Applicants must also meet Florida Medicaid financial eligibility requirements, which as of 2019 are capped at $16,040 per year for individuals or $21,599 for couples. This program has an enrollment cap, and there’s typically a waiting list for new applicants. Seniors can contact 1-800-96-ELDER to inquire about eligibility or apply for the program.

    Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

    Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly

    The PACE program provides financial, medical and social assistance to elderly individuals who require a nursing level of care but prefer to continue living in their community. According to the PACE guidelines, program participants may live independently or within an assisted living community. While the program doesn’t provide seniors with additional funds, it does offer its participants subsidized access to medical and social services at drastically reduced rates.

    To be eligible, applicants must complete a comprehensive care assessment to determine the necessary level of care. They also must be 55 years of age or older, be able to live safely in their community and meet Medicaid’s financial requirements. Seniors can find a PACE provider in their area by calling 1-855-435-7223.

    Elderlife Bridge Loan

    Seniors who are unable to access Medicaid but can’t pay for the cost of assisted living on their own can apply for an elder bridge loan from Elderlife Financial Services. Bridge loans are paid directly to the assisted living facility on behalf of the senior and can be paid back in installments, typically monthly payments for the duration of the loan term.

    Although eligibility depends on credit and income, seniors can apply with up to six cosigners. Applicants must also be residing in or moving into an approved facility in order to be eligible for a loan.

    Optional State Supplement

    Supplemental Security Income recipients can apply for OSS, a cash benefit that’s designed to help seniors pay the cost of room and board in assisted living facilities. The OSS benefit is based on the applicant’s income, which must be less than $849.40 monthly, and it has a maximum payout of $78.40 each month.

    In addition to monthly income limits, seniors applying for OSS must not possess assets valued at more than $2,000 per individual or $3,000 per couple. Seniors can receive more information about the OSS benefit and submit their application for the program by contacting ACCESS Florida at 1-866-762-2237.

    Long-Term Care Insurance

    Long-term care insurance policies are available to older adults to help them prepare for the future and the potential that they may one day require long-term care. Companies such as Genworth Financial and Bankers Life offer such policies in Broward County. The cost of long-term care insurance varies from provider to provider and is dependent on several factors such as the policyholder’s age and health, as well as the current average cost of care and the amount and type of coverage purchased.

    Eligibility guidelines differ between policies and providers, but generally, people must purchase a long-term care insurance policy before the need for long-term care exists.

    Senior and Community Centers in Broward County

    Senior centers in Broward County are typically open to seniors age 55 and older and provide a range of services and programs that may include social activities, day trips, congregate meals and classes in computers, fitness, nutrition or finance.
