Congregate housing facilities are an option for some older adults who have temporary or periodic difficulties with one or more essential Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). ADLs can include dressing, eating, bathing, toileting, transferring and managing continence.
Congregate housing facilities provide a semi-independent community living environment. Residents have a private apartment with a kitchen and bath and share common areas for dining and socializing.
Residents who need more care than congregate housing provides can access in-home services. Read the programs below that provide subsidies for assisted living services for eligible residents of congregate housing. Both programs have eligibility requirements, and both have limited capacity.
