Tapestry House Assisted Living was very pretty, but the staff looked very uncomfortable and did not look relaxed with the residents. I didn't see much interaction. It was a nice layout, and it was huge. For people using wheelchairs or walkers, to go from one section to the next would be a lot. The new building was very...Read more Tapestry House Assisted Living reviews

I have a relative in this place. The facilities are new and nice. But the service is very poor. Extremely understaffed and poorly managed. Patients buzz for help and wait for hours. 90% of the time there is no response. Even the emergency pull elicits no response. Their disorganization has led to patient meds getting m...Read more Inspired Living at Alpharetta reviews

Medicaid offers several financial programs for seniors who need help paying for assisted living in Alpharetta. The most popular assistance comes from two Medicaid waivers: the Community Care Services Program (CCSP) and the Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment (SOURCE).
Community Care Service Program
Under the CCSP, seniors can receive various support and services that may otherwise be an out-of-pocket cost. This program makes it possible for seniors to receive care while remaining in the community. Some of these services include adult day health care, emergency response equipment and personal care. To qualify, individuals must:
To be financially qualified, monthly income is limited to $2,313 for each applicant, and the countable asset value must be less than $2,000 for single applicants and $3,000 for married applicants. This limit excludes the individual’s primary vehicle and the primary residence, valued at up to $585,000. There’s also a $10,000 burial extension for applicants and their spouses.
To apply for CCSP, seniors can contact the Atlanta Regional Commission on Aging at (404) 463-3333.
Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment combines primary care, social services and long-term care programs for seniors who live at home or in assisted living communities.
The types of services provided may include:
To be eligible for SOURCE, an individual must be 65 or older with a chronic medical condition or disabled, determined to need nursing home level of care and eligible for full Medicaid.
To apply for SOURCE, seniors should contact the local Department of Human Services at (888) 552-4464.
Home and Community-Based Services
Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) help seniors aged 60 and older live independently. Seniors must demonstrate the need for care that’s available in an institutional setting but be able to live safely within the community. Mandated through the Older Americans Act, HCBS provides a variety of services, including:
There’s a cap on the number of people who can participate in this program, and the Department of Human Services has included a tier system to help people better understand the likelihood of receiving care within the next year. Tier one is for individuals with a high level of need and therefore have a priority position. Tier two is for those who have been determined to have a lower level of need than those with a tier one status and may need to reapply when their situation becomes more urgent.
For more information, interested seniors can go online to the HBCS website or contact (800) 436-7442.
