It is an interesting facility; very “rustic” in both a good and bad way. It looks like a summer camp for kids. It has a petting zoo, of sorts. The chickens run around everywhere outside. Some of the parking is in the dirt and is muddy when rainy. It has a country décor inside. Either the staff is busy working, or they ...Read more Forest Glen Lodge reviews
They lack green space outside as it is located downtown New Port Richey. The main floor is nicely decorated and they give residents choices in meals. The rooms are nice as they give on option of a single studio room or a two room suite that can be used for two people who would share a bathroom or one person who wants a...Read more Grand Villa of New Port Richey reviews
The residents at Grand Villa of New Port Richey were doing nothing, just sitting around. The lady showed us the rooms and the memory care section. The memory care was pretty and brand new. The dining room was nice, but the food choices were not so great. There was an area where the residents can go and eat any time of ...Read more Grand Villa of New Port Richey reviews

This facility looks like a three star hotel. They offer choices in meals. The rooms are in wings with long halls. The doors are closed to most residents’ rooms and the halls are mostly quiet. This would be a good choice for a senior who still has a degree of independence and wants their privacy. They do have activitie...Read more Oakview Terrace reviews

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Senior care prices are based on a variety of factors including the type of care provided, the local cost of living and the number of facilities and services in the area.
In New Port Richey, the most expensive option is nursing home care, which is more than twice the cost of assisted living. This is because nursing homes provide around-the-clock supervision, skilled nursing and additional services such as medication administration, which aren’t generally included with assisted living. In-home services from a homemaker or home health aide are also priced higher than assisted living.
Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart
Medicaid, the nationwide health coverage program jointly funded by the federal and state governments, provides basic health care for approximately 90% of seniors and people with disabilities in Florida. Medicaid services for low-income seniors include preventive health screening, primary and emergency care, as well as long-term care in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
Medicaid eligibility is based on income and countable assets. For seniors age 65 and older seeking Medicaid coverage, the maximum allowable monthly income is $2,313 per person (or $4,626 per couple), which is 300% of the current SSI federal benefit rate.
Medicaid applicants are also subject to asset limits of $2,000 per individual and $3,000 per couple. Countable assets include cash, bank account balances, stocks, bonds and most real estate. An applicant’s principal residence is exempt if valued at $585,000 or less, along with clothing, jewelry, household furnishings and one vehicle.
Statewide Managed Care, Long-Term Care Waiver
Federal law mandates that Florida seniors who qualify for Medicaid and need the type of care normally offered in a nursing home setting must participate in the Comprehensive Assessment and Review for Long-Term Care Services screening program.
Seniors who complete CARES screening may be enrolled in the Statewide Managed Care Long-Term Care Program, a Medicaid wavier program designed to prevent nursing home placement by funding enhanced senior care services within an assisted living setting.
Services provided through the SMMC LTC are based on recommendations made by the CARES assessor and contingent upon the medical needs of each senior. SMMC LTC services may include medication administration and management, personal or attendant care, medical supplies and equipment, and/or speech, physical and occupational therapy.
Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefits and Housebound Allowance
Veterans Affairs provides additional pension benefits to qualified veterans and survivors who are housebound, have a severe visual impairment or require help to complete daily activities through the Aid and Attendance Benefits and Housebound Allowance.
These two VA pension top-up programs are available to qualified applicants who aren’t currently receiving a VA disability pension.
For the Housebound Allowance, applicants must be largely limited to their principal place of residence as a result of a permanent disability.
For Aid and Attendance Benefits, applicants must either live in a nursing home, be bedridden, need help with activities of daily living and/or have vision tested at 5/200 or worse.
Qualifying disabilities don’t have to be related to military service. Note that applicants may only receive benefits through one of these programs, even if they meet the criteria for both.
For more information and application assistance, contact the Pasco County Division of Veterans Services at (727) 834-3282.
Optional State Supplementation
Florida is one of a number of states offering a cash assistance program to top up SSI benefits for seniors 65 and older who reside in assisted living facilities.
The Florida Optional State Supplementation program provides up to $78.40 per month to individual seniors, and up to $156.80 for couples, to use toward the room-and-board portion of assisted living costs.
To learn more about the OSS program, contact the SunCoast Region office of the Florida Department of Children and Families at (813) 558-5500.
