Affordable Senior Housing
If you’re like millions of seniors in America, circumstances may have prevented you from saving enough money or acquiring the necessary assets to afford some senior living communities. "Affordable senior housing" is a relatIve term: what is affordable for some people may not be manageable for others.
But if you have begun the search for senior living options and you don’t have income or assets other than your social security check, you may have found that your options are limited. There is not a huge supply of affordable senior housing available, and unless you are completely destitute and need some level of health care, some government programs such as Medicaid will not be much help. But there is hope.
On this page you will find information and resources that may help you in your search, including a link to HUD-sponsored senior housing programs and Benefits Check-up.
