I only toured the facility on behalf of my parents so I don't know the quality of care or how the food is at Prosperity Oaks. Kara was very informative and helpful. The facility is being remodeled, which will help tremendously as it is outdated. I was disappointed with the layout and size of the one bedroom apartment...Read more Brookdale Palm Beach Gardens reviews

We paid for the extra nursing care and she was suppose to be bathed 3 times a week but we f...Read more Brookdale Palm Beach Gardens reviews
I live in a beautiful apartment in Brookdale Palm Beach Gardens. We chose it because my daughters and their friends live down here. I find the staff mixed; some are pretty good. The price is the best we can get. The food is OK. It's not a gourmet restaurant, but most of the time it's OK. They have music, dancing, and m...Read more Brookdale Palm Beach Gardens reviews
My friend moved into Brookdale and he's settled in, but during the move in it was very negative. They took a month's rent and their finance people didn't coordinate everything with the finance people. He's still waiting to have things done and the place was very filthy. The location is perfect for me as a friend and I ...Read more Brookdale Palm Beach Gardens reviews
Brookdale Palm Beach Gardens was nice. It had a hotel atmosphere and a big lobby. The apartments were kind of small. The staff was all sufficiently skilled in their trade. The dining area was nice, it was set up as a restaurant. We didn't see actual residents' rooms, just a model apartment. They have everything that a ...Read more Brookdale Palm Beach Gardens reviews

In Florida and throughout the country, Medicaid is available to low-income families and individuals and provides financial assistance and access to healthcare services. Florida’s Medicaid program is managed jointly by the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) and the Social Security Administration. The DCF is responsible for determining the eligibility of most applicants to the state’s Medicaid program including seniors and disabled persons, while the Social Security Administration qualifies applicants who receive Supplemental Security Income.
Florida’s Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program operates under the state Medicaid program and provides seniors with access to care in assisted living facilities and nursing care homes. In addition to the cost of care, this program covers additional health care costs, including doctor visits, dental care, hospitalization, prescription medication and nonmedical transportation.
To qualify for the Managed Care Long-Term Care Program, seniors must be 65 years of age or older and submit to a complete care assessment to determine the type of care they require. Financial requirements of Florida’s Medicaid programs stipulate that applicants may not have an income that exceeds $16,040 when applying alone, while couples may not have an income that’s higher than $21,599. The Managed Care program is capped, which usually means there are substantial waiting lists for applicants wanting to participate in the program.
Seniors can contact the Florida Department of Elder Affairs at (800) 963-5337 to obtain more information about the application and wait-list times.
Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
Florida’s PACE program is aimed at seniors who require a nursing level of care. Its intention is to provide no-cost or low-cost access to a variety of home and community-based services that may help them to avoid institutionalization. Services provided by PACE may include assisted living or home care services, nonmedical transportation and case management. Participants of PACE receive all types of health care and long-term care from a single provider. PACE is administered by the Department of Elder Affairs.
To be eligible for PACE, applicants must be 55 years of age or older. They must also be able to live safely in their own home or in an assisted living facility and a care assessment is required to determine the applicant’s level of need. Financially, applicants are subject to the same requirements as the Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program.
To apply for PACE, seniors living in Palm Beach Gardens can call (561) 868-2999.
Optional State Supplementation
Seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income may qualify for Florida’s Optional State Supplementation (OSS). OSS is a cash benefit that’s designed to provide seniors who receive long-term care with additional funding for room and board costs, which aren’t typically covered by Medicaid programs.
OSS benefit amounts are determined by the applicant’s living situation and current income. The maximum payout is $78.40 per month. Seniors applying for OSS may not have a monthly income exceeding $849.40 and may not have assets that are valued higher than $2,000.
Seniors who wish to apply for OSS can contact ACCESS Florida at (866) 762-2237.
Long-Term Care Insurance
A long-term care insurance policy covers the cost of assisted living or nursing home care. Policyholders typically purchase their policies earlier in life, prior to reaching the point of needing long-term care. After paying the deductible, and if applicable, the co-pay amount, seniors can have their insurance provider pay for their care or reimburse their costs. Most policies require that deductibles are paid annually.
Each long-term care insurance provider has different eligibility guidelines and policy terms, but typically, anyone who is in poor health does not qualify for long-term care insurance.
Elderlife Bridge Loan
Elderlife Financial Services provides seniors with an alternative payment method while they await permanent funding. While they must be repaid in full, bridge loans offer seniors some relief when it comes to paying the cost of care in assisted living facilities. Elderlife Financial pays the cost of services in full on behalf of seniors who are approved for a bridge loan. Seniors then pay the loan back in monthly installments. Loans are available with low interest rates and flexible terms.
While eligibility is determined by income and credit history, seniors may include up to six cosigners on their application, which may increase the likelihood of approval and reduce monthly payments. Seniors can learn more about Elderlife bridge loans or start their application by calling (888) 228-4500.
Senior centers provide those aged 55 and older with a place to gather with peers and take part in various activities that may include congregate meals, educational programming, social activities and day trips.
