I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My son is settled in Grand Villa of Delray East. We had him in a facility in Greenacres for three weeks and they almost killed him, so we had to change and we looked over a bunch of other places. I already have two sons in Grand Villa in different locations, so I decided to try this one in Delray Beach. They were far superior to the one in Greenacres. My son has been there since mid-November. I would give the staff an A+ rating and a gold star. They are very responsive, everything he needs, he gets. The food is good and the atmosphere is great. They keep the place very clean. My son is almost blind. He only maybe has 3% of the normal sight, so he is incapable of participating in any activity. Grand Villa has a large screen TV, a library, a general store if you need to buy something and I think they have a bistro to get coffee or snack. Right now with food, they don't have the ability to bring a lot of things to the room and I think once the pandemic is over, it will probably go back to normal.

It was very nice and I liked it. It was one of the two I had on my list. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I liked where it was. It was very close to everything and close to my son's house. The grounds were nice. The rooms were very nicely done and clean, but you have to bring your own furniture.

We're moving in. It was nice and very homey, and the people were charming. The rooms were lovely and had a lovely atmosphere. We liked it better than any other place we saw. We're looking forward to living there in a few weeks.

I visited this facility

I decided to move in. We chose it because of the people and the feeling that I got. Everybody's very friendly. I was able to get a first floor unit with very little walking. My apartment is right near all the activities so I don't have to do a lot of walking. It has two bedrooms and two baths with a lovely screened-in porch. The food is fine. There's a choice of several things on the menu. I can't say enough about the place. Everybody's been so nice and so helpful, from the amenities, to the people, and the food. I don't have anything bad to say about it.

I found it for my mom. It's very clean, bright, modern, and everyone is very friendly. The staff and the people staying there are very friendly. Everyone has been helpful in helping me transition my mom. They've been helping in all aspects of the move. My mom will move in on Saturday. The room that she's getting is a 1-bedroom. It has a full kitchen, bathroom, ceramic countertops, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator. It also has a balcony. There's a library in each section, an exercise room, pool, spa, steam room, and sauna.

My parents are in Grand Villa of Delray Beach East. My father is on assisted living and my mother had to go to the memory care unit. We went there because it had the nicest apartments of all the assisted living places we visited -- it's actually a 1-bedroom apartment. The food is very good and my parents were very happy with it. My dad was a little surprised that in assisted living, they come in and out whenever they feel like it. It was kind of a shock for him because he doesn't need that kind of care, and they're not really forthcoming about walking in anytime they want. They do knock, but I think it's a little bit ridiculous to have someone cleaning the apartment at 6:30 in the morning. We're basically very happy there though, and my mother is getting good care over in the memory care unit. They don't have a library or exercise place with equipment, but they do have an exercise class. If they can put those in, that would be great. The staff is very caring, but the place is kind of expensive.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Delray Beach

Medicaid in Florida

Approximately 16% of Florida’s children, seniors, and adults with disabilities have access to basic health services through Medicaid, the national government health coverage program.

Florida’s Medicaid plans are administered by the Agency for Health Care Administration and include mandatory benefits, such as inpatient and outpatient hospitalization, primary physician services, home health and nursing facility care. 

Qualify for Medicaid Long-Term Care Waivers

To qualify for no-cost Medicaid coverage that includes access to home and community based waivers and institutional care, seniors must:

  • Be U.S. citizens or hold valid immigration status
  • Have a Social Security number
  • Be full-time Florida residents
  • Meet the Medicaid criteria for placement in a nursing facility
  • Earn no more than $2,313 per month ($4,626 per couple)
  • Own no more than $2,000 in countable assets ($3,000 per couple)


Some assets are classified as exempt, such as a vehicle, an irrevocable burial contract and a home owned and occupied by the applicant and/or their spouse assessed at $585,000 or less. 

If only one spouse requires Medicaid, any income the other spouse earns is disregarded. 

Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program

The Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care program is a Medicaid home and community-based nursing home diversion plan for seniors aged 65 and older. It funds community-based services allowing frail seniors to remain in the least-intrusive setting possible, which may be an assisted living facility. 

Applicants are referred to the SMMC LTC through the Comprehensive Assessment and Review for Long-Term Care Services program, a federally mandated assessment that identifies the care needs of each senior who requests long-term Medicaid services. 

SMMC LTC services are assigned based on the medical needs of each participant and may include: 

  • Adult day programming
  • A medical alert system
  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Skilled and intermittent nursing
  • In-home meal delivery
  • Rehabilitation therapies, such as speech, occupational and physical therapy
  • Transportation
  • Laundry and housekeeping
  • End-of-life care
  • Case management
  • Respite care
  • Disposable medical supplies and durable medical equipment


Seniors accepted into the SMMC LTC program must cover the room-and-board portion of their assisted living costs. 

For more information on Medicaid and the SMMC LTC, contact the Area Agency on Aging for Palm Beach/Treasure Coast at (866) 684-5885.  

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly

The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly is a nursing home diversion program that allows frail seniors to age in place in their community while living at home, with family or in an assisted living facility. Using a collaborative managed care model, PACE provides seniors with client-centered services designed to optimize health, wellness and independence. 

Each PACE site has an interdisciplinary team consisting of primary care physicians, therapists, nurses, activation specialists, social workers and home care workers. PACE participants receive all of their Medicaid-funded services through PACE-affiliated providers, and many health care services are based at the local PACE center. 

PACE services include primary and specialty care, adult day care, transportation to the PACE center, hospitalization and end of life care. The program also includes prescription medication and medical equipment coverage, in-home assistance with activities of daily living, home-delivered and communal meals, and medication management. 

To be eligible for PACE enrollment, seniors aged 55 and older must:

  • Require the level of care normally provided in a nursing facility as determined by a CARES assessment
  • Live in a PACE service area
  • Be eligible for Medicaid, or
  • Be eligible for Medicaid and Medicare, or
  • Be able to cover program costs on a private-pay basis
  • Be able to live safely in the community with the services offered by PACE


Once a senior enrolls in PACE, they receive all their medical care through the program. Seniors are free to leave PACE at any time. 

For more information contact MorseLife, the PACE provider for Delray Beach at (561) 325-6439. 

Optional State Supplementation

The Florida Optional State Supplementation program helps seniors aged 65 and older pay for their room-and-board costs by topping up their monthly Supplemental Security Income benefits. 

To qualify for the OSS, seniors must be eligible for SSI benefits and reside in an assisted living facility because they cannot live on their own. Individuals may receive up to $78.40 per month in OSS, and couples may receive up to $156.80 in addition to their federal SSI benefit. . 

For more information on the OSS, call ACCESS Florida’s Southeast Region office at (561) 837-5078.
