My family memember had a lot of things stolen from her room over a period of time. Rooms are not locked and many people have access to residents' rooms. Nothing was done about this despite it being reported.Response times to calls for help are very slow. Some staff are very caring but others are unkind to residents...Read more Brookdale Deer Creek reviews
We went to Brookdale Deer Creek, but the calendar on their wall still had the March schedule up in April. I asked the young girl if I could see the memory department because it had doors and was separated, and she said, "Oh, you don't see that now." To me, that was a big red flag. If somebody visits the place and they ...Read more Brookdale Deer Creek reviews
Brookdale Deer Creek was very good, but it needed a little updating. It was a very nice place, but it didn't have as many facilities as the other place I've visited. The attitude of the staff, and the housekeeping was all good. The management team was all very good. The rooms and apartments were nice and adequate in te...Read more Brookdale Deer Creek reviews
The place looked really nice but it was a pig with lipstick on. The care my Mom got was sub-standard. The food was awful, the housekeeping didn't do the room half the time and they failed to change the mattress cover, which I had requested, I had left 3 so it would be easy. They gave her her meds wrong and we had 20 pi...Read more Brookdale Deer Creek reviews
Brookdale Deer Creek was nice and clean, and the people were nice. The biggest thing was the walking distance to the dining room because my mother gets tired easily. A girl showed me two rooms, which were very nice, but not big enough and did not a whole lot of closet space. I did not see any washer and dryer in the on...Read more Brookdale Deer Creek reviews

Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
As with other areas of the state and country, the cost of senior care is based on the level of service required. The cost of in-home services in Deerfield Beach is comparable to the cost of assisted living. However, it’s important to note that most facilities include food and utilities in the monthly bill. Seniors considering in-home care should account for living expenses when comparing costs.
There is a large gap between the cost of assisted living and nursing home care. The average cost of a nursing facility in Deerfield Beach is almost three times that of assisted living, which makes the choice between levels of care even more important in this part of Florida.

Medicaid is a state and nationally funded program that can provide basic medical coverage and other benefits for low-income families and individuals. In Florida, Medicaid is managed by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration.
Florida Medicaid can help seniors pay for certain costs of assisted living, but it doesn’t cover room and board at this type of facility. Most Medicaid services associated with assisted living are provided through waivers, which are explained below.
Medicaid funding for assisted living is not considered an entitlement in Florida, so there may be a waiting list to receive services. However, the state guarantees immediate Medicaid funding for nursing home stays.
Applicants for Medicaid must meet the following eligibility requirements:
Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) Program
Most recipients of Medicaid are already enrolled in the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) program. This program covers all of the Medicaid waivers for Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) that are available in Florida and may help to pay for some of the costs associated with assisted living.
The SMMC program is split in three plans:
Applicants can receive services from one or more of the above plans. The Long-Term Care (LTC) plan can help to cover services such as assisted living, nursing homes and in-home care. The Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) plan covers various medical services such as prescription drugs, doctors and hospitals, mental health treatment and transportation for approved purposes. The dental plan covers all Medicaid dental services and is mandatory for everyone on Medicaid.
Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
PACE is a federally funded program for anyone aged 55 years or older who is also eligible for Medicaid or Medicare. The goal of this program is to allow seniors to remain in their own home as opposed to entering a nursing home.
Certified PACE organizations provide various levels of care, from in-home to nursing facilities and specialized centers, as well as various services such as primary care, meal delivery and prescription drugs.
This program does not directly cover all services associated with assisted living. However, it may help to pay for certain aspects of care in an assisted living facility.
Applicants for PACE must meet the following eligibility requirements:
Find out more about the eligibility and application process at the Florida Department of Elder Affairs website. Alternatively, residents of Deerfield Beach can contact the Broward County branch of PACE in Miramar at (954) 441-7079.
Optional State Supplementation (OSS)
Florida’s Department of Children and Families provides this program that may help low-income seniors pay for certain aspects of assisted living. The OSS is designed to help people who can no longer live independently and require assistance on a regular basis.
Unlike the Medicaid plan and waivers, OSS is intended to help with the cost of room and board and other out-of-pocket expenses. The maximum monthly payment for an individual is $78.40, and for couples, it’s $156.80.
Applicants for the OSS program must meet the following eligibility requirements:
A case manager will usually make the application for OSS. Alternatively, seniors or their caregivers can apply through the ACCESS Florida website or call 1-866-762-2237 for more information.
