This is being written at the request of my mother ( a 6+ year resident of John Knox) and her friends. Overall, this is an excellent senior community, however, the quality of food is now only one step above institutional. In the past, I have described the food as gourmet and delicious as did my mother and her friends. ...Read more Oak View Assisted Living reviews
Woodland Towers is a fairly nice facility for the price, with a good layout. The price was not too bad, but the person who gave me the tour was very curt, not very cooperative or giving, and not very helpful or accommodating. The 1-bedroom units were pretty nice and has a balcony. It's an older facility, but it seems t...Read more Woodland Towers reviews
We like Woodland Towers because it's conveniently close to everywhere and they take good care of my in-laws. The place is very clean. The room is very nice, but the bathroom seems small for them to move around in with a wheelchair. The dining area is OK, and my in-laws say sometimes the food is good, but sometimes not ...Read more Woodland Towers reviews

According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study, Volusia County assisted living costs are below the national average of $4,000 and above the state average of $3,500. Prices for assisted living are lower in nearby Orlando ($3,275), while costs are similar in other communities along the Atlantic coast, including Palm Bay ($3,750) and Port St. Lucie ($3,620).
Note: Senior care cost data wasn’t available for Volusia County, so data for Deltona, a city in Volusia County, was used.
Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
The cost of senior care services are largely based on the location, type of care and hours of direct service provided. In Volusia County, the cost of nursing home care is more than twice the cost of assisted living. In-home senior care with a home health aide or homemaker service is slightly more expensive than assisted living. Unlike residential senior care services, in-home services do not include expenses related to maintaining a home, such as rent, property maintenance and utilities. Seniors should factor in these costs when comparing the cost of care options.

Medicaid is a nationwide health insurance program that is jointly funded by the federal government and each state. It provides limited health coverage to low-income children, adults and seniors who have very few assets. In Florida, the Agency for Health Care Administration administers Medicaid.
Seniors aged 65 and older who are residents of Florida must meet specific financial criteria to qualify for Medicaid coverage. Single seniors must earn less than $2,313 per month and have countable assets valued at $2,000 or less. Couples applying for Medicaid together must have a joint income of less than $4,626 per month and have $3,000 or less in countable assets.
Medicaid includes income from all sources, such as wages, pensions and investment interest. Countable assets include cash, bank account balances, stocks and all real estate except for a principal residence worth $585,000 or less. One vehicle, household furniture, clothing and jewelry are also excluded under Medicaid asset rules.
As with all states except California, Florida has a five-year Medicaid asset look-back period. Medicaid applicants may be subject to ineligibility penalties levied on any countable assets they gifted or transferred during the five years prior to their Medicaid application. Look-back penalties are calculated by dividing the total market value of any “uncompensated transfers” during the look-back period divided by the average cost per month of a private-pay nursing home.
Seniors in Florida who qualify for Medicaid coverage and have nursing home-level care needs may be eligible for assistance through the Florida Statewide Medicaid Managed Care, Long-Term Care Program, or SMMC LTC.
This program is designed to delay or prevent nursing home placement among older adults by providing additional care services in the community and assisted living facilities. Services through the LTC program are delivered according to medical necessity as determined by each individual’s managed care plan.
LTC services may include:

Optional State Supplementation
Florida seniors aged 65 and older who qualify for Supplemental Security Income benefits may also be eligible for funding for the room-and-board portion of residential care at an assisted living facility through the Optional State Supplementation program.
The OSS program is administered by the Florida Department of Children and Families and funded by state-generated revenue. In most cases, individual applicants may receive a maximum monthly OSS payment of $78.40, while couples applying together may get up to $156.80.
For more information about the Florida OSS, call ACCESS Florida at (866) 762-2237.
Veterans Aid and Attendance Program
Veterans and survivors who receive a VA pension and require care from another person daily may be eligible for the Aid and Attendance pension top-up. This benefit may also be available to veterans who are ineligible for a basic pension because their income exceeds the VA pension income limits.
To qualify, applicants must meet at least one of the following criteria:
Note that veterans who receive a VA disability pension are excluded from this program.
Veterans Housebound Allowance
Veterans who have a VA disability rating of 100 percent, receive a VA pension and are mainly limited to their place of residence due to a permanent disability may be eligible for a VA pension top-up through the Veterans Housebound Allowance. Applicants do not need to have service-related disabilities for this program.
