Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Meadville

Unfortunately, Pennsylvania is one of several states that do not offer any public financial assistance or waivers to help pay for care in an assisted living facility. Current waivers offer financial assistance for nursing home care or in-home assistance. Even so, seniors who get SSI benefits can still apply for state assistance to pay for a monthly supplement to defray the costs of an assisted living facility.
