I visited this facility

Heritage of Brookstone was a nice place. We liked the folks there, but it had more of an atmosphere of assisted living and we're not looking for that yet. The staff was very nice and informative.

The rooms at Heritage of Brookstone are great. They are studio rooms so that my dad has his own room instead of a shared room like a hospital room. He finally got his own room after a year of being in a hospital room. Food is excellent. The nursing care is excellent. The doctors onboard at the facility are awesome. They're right there. It's the best move we ever made. There are so many activities going on. You're never bored. Instead of TVs everywhere (they don't have TVs), they have music playing. I'm so happy to hear the music. It's like walking back in time. This place is comfortable. It's not an open door where anybody could walk in at any time. Here, you have to sign in.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Kennesaw

Medicaid in Georgia

Medicaid is a health insurance program that provides free or low-cost health coverage to eligible Americans. Low-income adults, people with disabilities, elderly adults and others may be able to receive health coverage through this program. In Georgia, Medicaid covers a wide variety of health services, including doctor visits, hospital services, medical equipment, nursing home care and transportation to medical appointments.

To obtain coverage from Georgia Medicaid, seniors must meet various eligibility criteria. They must live in Georgia, and they must be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, permanent residents or legal aliens. In addition, they must meet income requirements. To qualify for Medicaid coverage, single seniors can’t earn more than $29,986 per year before tax. The maximum yearly earnings for couples is $40,656 before tax.

Kennesaw seniors can apply for Medicaid coverage through the state of Georgia’s online portal, Georgia Gateway. They can also visit the Cobb County Department of Family and Children Services, which is located at 325 South Fairground Street in Marietta, or call the DFCS office at (770) 528-7683.

In Georgia, two Medicaid waiver programs may help seniors access assisted living care: the Community Care Services Program and Services Options Using Resources in a Community Environment.

The CCSP provides many services to eligible seniors, such as adult day health care, assisted living care, personal support services and home-delivered meals, depending on the senior’s needs. To qualify for this program, seniors must need the level of care that is provided by a nursing home but choose to live elsewhere, such as at home or in an assisted living facility. They must also be financially eligible for Medicaid and not currently participating in another waiver program.

The CCSP is not an entitlement program, and there is a waiting list to receive services. The amount of funding from the state determines the number of spots available in this program, and seniors are prioritized based on their need for services.

To apply for the CCSP, or to learn more, seniors can call the Atlanta Regional Area Agency on Aging at (404) 463-3100.

SOURCE is a Medicaid waiver program that helps connect frail elderly adults with health care services. Seniors who participate in this program receive an individual care path based on their medical needs. This care path may include long-term care services, such as assisted living services, personal support services and adult day health care. Like the CCSP, this program isn’t an entitlement.

To be eligible for SOURCE, seniors must require the level of care that is provided by nursing homes and be financially eligible for Medicaid. They must also undergo a comprehensive assessment.

Seniors who want to apply for SOURCE or learn more about the program can call 1 (866) 552-4464 to speak to a representative at Home and Community-Based Services.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Veterans Aid and Assistance Program

Veterans and survivor spouses who need help paying for assisted living care may be eligible to receive assistance from the Veterans Aid and Assistance Program. Seniors who participate in this program get an additional monthly payment on top of their VA pension. This extra funding can help seniors pay for their care in assisted living facilities.

To be eligible for this increased pension amount, seniors must be eligible to receive a VA pension. They must also require assistance from another person to bathe, get dressed or perform other daily functions. Seniors who are legally blind, bedridden or residents of nursing homes may also qualify.

To apply, seniors can mail a written request to the Philadelphia Regional VA Office at the address listed below. This office is the Pension Management Center for Georgia and the rest of the East Coast. Seniors can also apply in person by visiting a local regional benefit office. For more information, seniors can call 1 (844) 698-2311 to speak to a Department of Veterans Affairs representative.

Bridge Loans for Assisted Living

Seniors in Kennesaw may be able to obtain short-term funding from an assisted living bridge loan. These loans may be helpful for seniors who are waiting to receive a more permanent source of funding, such as the proceeds from a home sale. Often, loans have a line of credit structure, and seniors can choose how much to withdraw each month. These funds are sent directly to the assisted living facility where the senior lives.

To apply for a bridge loan, seniors can call Elderlife Financial at (888) 228-4500 or fill out an online application. Seniors can have up to six cosigners, and these cosigners do not have to be relatives of the senior.
