Types of Assisted Living Available in Kentucky

Kentucky certifies all qualified assisted living communities through the Kentucky Department of Aging and Independent Living. The certification is done each year, so make sure to check with the facility to make sure they are up to standards.

The state agency does a phenomenal job of separating the legitimate assisted living communities from fraudsters. It also helps aid families new to elderly care facilities.

The services featured with most providers are excellent, and Kentucky is known for housing great staff at their senior living complexes. You can learn a lot about the quality of care through the certification process and ratings.

Paying for Assisted Living in Kentucky

The Supports for Community Living Waiver (provided through the state’s Medicaid program) assists with adult foster care.

Unfortunately, the program is largely reserved for those with physical challenges, and the disability must have been developed prior to 22 years of age.

The only non-Medicaid alternative to help pay for senior care is through an initiative known as the Hart-Supported Living program.
