About ALW Program Options
How The Assisted Living Specialist can help you with you ALW Program needs
We aim to guide and support you through the process of applying for and accessing services under the Medi-Cal Assisted Living Waiver (ALW) program in California. The ALW program offers essential assisted living services for elderly or disabled California residents who require a Nursing Home Level of Care but prefer the comfort and independence of an assisted living environment over a nursing home.
Our team is well-versed in the intricacies of the ALW program and can help you navigate the eligibility criteria and application process, ensuring that you have the necessary support to make informed decisions about your assisted living options. The ALW program covers a range of services, including personal care assistance, homemaker services, and home health aides, available in Adult Residential Facilities (ARFs), Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE), and Public Subsidized Housing (PSH).
While the ALW program does not offer a participant-directed option for caregiver selection, we are here to connect you with licensed home health agency providers or staff employed by the residential care facility, ensuring you receive quality care and assistance. It’s essential to note that the ALW program is currently available in 15 California counties, and we can help you find assisted living settings within those areas.
Please remember that the Assisted Living Waiver is not an entitlement program, and while meeting the eligibility requirements is crucial, immediate access to assisted living services is not guaranteed due to limited participant enrollment slots. In such cases, we will guide you through the waitlist process and advocate for your needs.
At The Assisted Living Specialist, we are committed to assisting you every step of the way, from application to accessing services under the ALW program. Let us help you find the right assisted living setting that suits your preferences and needs, ensuring a comfortable and fulfilling living experience in California.
