Grand Villa of Englewood turned my husband down. I had actually put down a deposit, but they came down to evaluate him and they felt that his medical profile was just a little more than they wanted to deal with. He is diabetic. I took two tours and it looked excellent. It's very good. It is a smaller facility than wher...Read more Grand Villa of Englewood reviews

We didn't like Grand Villa. We found the staff tp be short and rude, and they book too many people at the same time, so they didn't have time for us. They weren't friendly, the kind of harsh, and you had to walk outside to get to everything, so it was not a nice setup. It's too hot for old people to walk outside.Read more Grand Villa of Englewood reviews

Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
The type of senior care is one of the biggest factors influencing the cost, and in Englewood, this is particularly evident. The average monthly cost of nursing home care in the city is nearly $5,000 higher than the cost of assisted living. Home health services in Englewood are more expensive than assisted living and homemaker services cost only slightly less. However, the cost of continuing to live at home is substantially higher than that of assisted living, especially when factoring in additional costs such as rent or mortgage payments, utility bills and groceries, all of which are typically included in the cost of assisted living.

Medicaid programs help low-income individuals and families access healthcare services, medical equipment and prescription medications that they may be unable to afford without assistance. In Florida, the Florida Department of Children and Families with support from the Social Security Administration administers Medicaid. Each agency is responsible for determining eligibility for certain individuals: the Department of Children and Families qualifies children, disabled individuals, pregnant women and seniors, while the Social Security Administration works exclusively with Supplemental Security Income recipients.
Seniors who require financial assistance with the cost of assisted living may be able to receive aid from Florida’s Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program, which covers the cost of services provided in assisted living facilities. It also allows low-income seniors to access health care services including doctor visits, dental care, hospital services, physical therapy, occupational therapy and nonemergency transportation. This program has an enrollment cap, so there is typically a long wait for those wanting to participate.
To qualify for Medicaid programs in Florida, individual applicants must have an income that doesn’t exceed $16,040 annually, and couples may not earn more than $21,599 per year. Assets may not be valued higher than $2,000 for individuals or $3,000 for couples. Exempt assets include the applicant’s home and household furnishings and a single vehicle.
Seniors can learn more about the application process and waiting times by contacting the Florida Department of Elder Affairs at (800) 963-5337.
Optional State Supplementation
Some low-income seniors in Englewood and throughout Florida may be eligible to receive cash benefits from the state’s Optional State Supplementation program. The OSS is for seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income, and it offers additional financial aid to those who may be unable to afford the cost of room and board in long-term care facilities. OSS benefits are only available to individuals who are legally disabled or aged 65 or older and receiving long-term care. The benefit amount is calculated based on the applicant’s income and living situation. The maximum payout is $78.40 per month.
To be eligible for OSS, seniors must be recipients of the federal Supplemental Security Income benefit, and their income may not exceed $849.40 per month. They also may not own assets valued at more than $2,000 in total.
Seniors who wish to apply for this benefit can contact ACCESS Florida at (866) 762-2237.
Elderlife Bridge Loan
Elderlife Financial Services provides seniors with bridge loans to assist them in paying for long-term care in assisted living and nursing care facilities while they await permanent funding. Funds are paid directly to the senior’s place of residence, and the senior, along with their cosigners, can repay the loan in monthly installments. Elderlife bridge loans are available at low interest rates and flexible terms.
To qualify for an Elderlife loan, seniors should have a good credit history and enough income to make monthly payments on their loan. Those who can’t obtain approval on their own may apply with up to six cosigners, which, in most cases, can increase the likelihood of approval. Seniors can learn more about Elderlife Financial Services or open an application by calling (888) 228-4500.
Long-Term Care Insurance
Some seniors may have a long-term care insurance policy, and those who do can have most of the cost of assisted living covered by their insurance provider. Depending on the policy and provider, there may be a copay or a deductible that the senior must pay out of pocket before their provider reimburses their costs. Eligibility, deductibles, copay amounts and premiums vary depending on the provider and the coverage purchased, but typically, long-term care insurance providers won’t sell policies to those in poor health or already residing in long-term care facilities.
Senior centers offer a variety of activities and programs for individuals aged 55 and older. Activities may include classes, day trips and social events.
