Section XII

Housing

Assisted Living Demonstration Project

Description:

Assisted living is designed for people who want to live in a community setting and who

need help with activities of daily living (ADLs), but who do not need nursing home care.

It combines housing, supportive services, personalized assistance and health care to

help individuals with daily activities. The Assisted Living Demonstration Project provides

subsidized assisted living to persons who reside in specific affordable housing complexes. These complexes include many state funded congregate housing communities, some HUD facilities that are funded by the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) and four affordable assisted living demonstration sites.

The Demonstration Project is a collaborative effort with the Department of Social Services (DSS), Department of Public Health, DECD, Connecticut Housing Finance Authority and Office of Policy and Management. Applicants for subsidized assisted living are subject to the same eligibility that is required for the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders. Demonstration participants receive assisted living services through an assisted living services agency, which is licensed by the Department of Public Health and is under contract with the housing community.

A portion of participants’ costs for assisted living services may be subsidized by the DECD or by DSS through the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders. Depending upon their income, participants may be required to contribute to the cost of their care.

This contribution is in addition to rent, core services paid to the housing community and payments for non-covered services.

Eligibility Requirements, Service Areas and Program Year:

Must meet eligibility requirements for residency stipulated by the housing community in which subsidized assisted living is offered.

Must be age 65 years or older.

XII - 8 Revised 2/2009 Continuing Care Facilities (CCFs)

Description:

Continuing Care Facilities (CCFs), formerly known as Continuing Care Retirement Communities, provide residents, through contractual agreements, lifetime shelter and access to a wide variety of services, including long-term health services. Each resident pays a substantial entrance fee and monthly fees in exchange for a living unit and access to services. Entrance fees and monthly service fees vary significantly by community and may be considered costly. The amount of long-term care included in the contract, the type of living unit chosen and whether one person or a couple occupies the unit can influence costs. Communities have different policies regarding the availability and terms of entrance-fee refunds. Various levels of care such as independent living, assistance with daily activities and nursing home care are typically provided on CCF campuses. As their needs change, residents are usually able to move from one level of care to another without leaving the community. If a CCF does not have a health center on campus, it often has an arrangement with a nearby healthcare facility to admit its residents on a priority basis.

CCFs are not licensed by the state. Specific components of each CCF’s health care package such as skilled nursing and assisted living services are licensed as health services. A CCF is not allowed to offer or enter into a continuing care contract unless it is registered with the Department of Social Services and meets certain disclosure requirements. The continuing care contract is a legal agreement between the resident and CCF that specifies the rights and obligations of both parties. Potential residents should consult with legal and financial advisors before signing this agreement.

Eligibility Requirements, Service Areas and Program Year:

Eligibility Requirements:

Eligibility requirements vary by community. Individuals should contact the community for which they have an interest to inquire about eligibility requirements.
