Depending upon the facility, additional meals, transportation and recreational activities may also be provided as well as help accessing community-based services for personal care. Residents pay rent and a congregate services fee. However, they may receive subsidies for either or both of these charges. Some congregate communities are publicly sponsored and are associated with Connecticut’s Congregate Housing for the Elderly program.
Assisted Living in Congregate Housing
Some Congregate Housing have an Assisted Living Service Agency (ALSA) on site and can provide these services to individuals 65 years of age and older who meet the qualifications for the CT Home Care Program for Elders.
