We are here to help.
Next Steps – The Basics
Once you or loved one has decided that an assisted living residence is a good next step, there are a few things that you can do to make the move easier. If you don’t have a will, or Miller’s Trust (estate trust) in place, you may want to talk to an Attorney to create one for you. Also, if you would like to have a voice in how your healthcare and last wishes are handled, you may want to prepare an advance directive. Check out a document called Five Wishes at www.fivewishes.org.
Finances – What are “Waivers?”
Waiver programs offer people who meet an institutional level of care the ability to receive care in a community or assisted living residence rather than a nursing care facility. There are income limits and eligibility requirements. These waivers are called 1) Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) waiver, and 2) Alaskans Living Independently (ALI) waiver. Both are accepted at Arctic Rose Assisted Living.
Choosing Services – Finding a Care Coordinator
A Care Coordinator is a professional who can help navigate the waiver process. This person can assist you or your loved one in assessing your level of care and determining your individual needs. A good place to start is Care Coordination Resource of Alaska at www.ccralaska.org.
