Very scary place. Night nurse “LaLa” gave grandma wrong meds once almost twice because she couldn’t identify her. CNA Krystal told my mom “You lied on LaLa.” And called her trash, stupid, and don’t tell me how to do my job after my mom asked for help with my grandma after being in a wet diaper for 4 hours.

Processing paperwork and getting the loved one in there is quick and easy. However, watch your loved one\'s belongings. They will walk away without a trace.

I have a parent there... everyone seems very nice. I do hear my mom complain about the food. The facility is nice inside but really needs a facelift outside. There seems to be a huge water and flooding issue outside. Some fresh paint on benches and plants would make a big difference.

My grandfather is currently here and the communication, the nursing compassion/knowledge/experience is lacking, to say the least. I am a nurse and I cannot believe how everything is transpiring. I understand you are short staffed but to tell my family multiple times “I only pass meds, I can’t help him” when he needed help? These kinds of places make me sick. How do any of y’all sleep at night? Why don’t you staff it more appropriately?

I visited Brookdale Southpoint, and one interesting thing is that they have a smoking area, so I am not sure how I feel about that. My dad is a smoker so he would really like it, but we are trying to make him quit, of course, so we don't know if it would be the best place. He is probably not going to quit, so I was thinking he would probably be more happy if he went there because he could smoke. It was very nice. A staff helped me there, and she was great. It was a Sunday morning, so there were not a whole lot of activities or anybody walking around around that I could see, but they had a nice sunroom, and the cafeteria was really nice, very big, and open, which is good. There is just one story, which was good, so he won't need to go on any elevators to help him get to where he was going. They have a nice little courtyard that most of the rooms look out into and is available for them to use. I like the rooms better there -- the size and the layout.

We're hoping to get my sister in Brookdale Mandarin. They could improve in being more responsive to questions. We're going back and forth on whether or not they'll take her secondary Medicaid insurance to help her pay for room and board. The staff at the location is saying one thing, and the insurance provider is saying another. So it's just really their knowledge of which insurances they can accept and which ones they cannot. The tour experience was perfectly fine.

We visited The Fountains at Mill Cove for my parents and the visit was fine. Everything is much older-looking and dingy. The staff person was phenomenal and very, very nice.

My father was in Sunrise of Jacksonville before he died. It was very nice. When my father passed, they were very personable. His apartment was spacious, they had private rooms, and then like two people would have their own bedrooms, but they shared a common bathroom. They were like extended family to him. They had bingo, crossword puzzles,and lots of word games. They had a courtyard at the back, and he took care of the raised garden. He said the food was very good. He loved it.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Jacksonville
Medicaid in Florida
In Florida, Medicaid provides low-income individuals with access to medical services and equipment. The Florida Department of Children and Families and the Social Security Administration manage the state’s plan. While the DCF is responsible for determining Medicaid eligibility for most Medicaid applicants, including children, disabled individuals, pregnant women and seniors, the Social Security Administration is responsible for determining the eligibility of those who receive Supplemental Security Income.
The Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program operates under the state’s Medicaid program and offers financial assistance to seniors who reside in assisted living facilities and nursing care homes. In addition to covering the cost of care, this program may provide seniors with other services such as dental care, medical care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and nonemergency transportation.
To be eligible for this program, seniors must be at least 65 years of age and complete a comprehensive care assessment to determine their level of need. Financially, individual applicants can’t have an income that exceeds $16,040 annually while couples may not have an income over $21,599. A cap on the number of applicants this program accepts means the waiting list is usually fairly long.
Seniors can obtain more information regarding the application process and waiting list times by contacting the Florida Department of Elder Affairs at (800) 963-5337.
Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living
Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly
The Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly is a subsidy managed by the state. It’s exclusively available to seniors who require a nursing level of care but would prefer to live at home or in an assisted living facility. PACE subsidizes the costs of medical and social services, such as daily nurse visits, medical and dental care, long-term care and prescription medications for eligible seniors.
Eligibility requirements for PACE stipulate that applicants must be 55 years of age or older and able to safely live within their community or in an assisted living facility. All applicants must undergo a comprehensive care assessment to determine their level of need. Financial requirements for this program are the same as for the Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program.
To apply for PACE or to learn more about the application process, seniors can call (855) 435-7223.
Optional State Supplementation
Florida’s Optional State Supplementation program is available to low-income seniors and disabled individuals who reside in a long-term care facility and receive the federal Supplemental Security Income benefit. The program provides these individuals with additional funding to help them pay for the cost of room and board in assisted living and nursing care facilities. OSS is only available to those who are legally disabled, age 65 or older or a U.S. citizen residing in a long-term care facility.
The applicant’s current income determines the benefit amount, which has a maximum of $78.40 per month. Seniors who apply for OSS may not have an income that exceeds $849.40 per month and may not own assets exceeding a value of $2,000.
Seniors who wish to apply for OSS can contact ACCESS Florida at (866) 762-2237.
Elderlife Bridge Loan
Elderlife Financial Services offers bridge loans intended to pay for long-term care in assisted living or nursing care facilities. The senior’s place of residence receives the funds, and the senior, or their cosigners, pay back the loan in monthly installments. Elderlife Financial Services’ loans are typically low-interest and offer flexible terms.
Applicants must have a good credit history, and their income must be high enough to repay their loan. Those who can’t obtain approval on their own may include up to six cosigners on their application to increase their chances of approval and reduce their monthly payments. Seniors can find out more or apply for an Elderlife bridge loan by calling (888) 228-4500.
Long-Term Care Insurance
Seniors who have a long-term care insurance policy can have the cost of assisted living covered by their insurance provider. Most providers require that the policyholder purchase this insurance before a need for long-term care exists. Eligibility, deductibles and premiums vary depending on the provider and the exact terms of the policy.
