Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Milford

Unlike many states, Pennsylvania doesn't provide financial assistance for care at an assisted living facility. The state only offers financial assistance waivers for seniors who require nursing home care or who require support for living at home. Even so, qualifying seniors receiving SSI may still be eligible for the state to pay a supplement for care at an assisted living facility. However, there is often a waiting list for these funds as that state has a cap on the amount it may spend.
