Homeless Services for Seniors
This short-term program, funded with federal stimulus dollars, provides case management services for limited-income Cleveland residents 60+ (or disabled 50+) at risk of becoming homeless. This service is intended for those currently homeless, at risk of eviction, living in a condemned property, or temporarily living with others.
Assisted Living is housing designed to assist adults with bathing, dressing, grooming, medications, and meal preparation. The care is less intensive than nursing home care. This support is provided in a setting that is, by design, residential in nature and is not intended to be temporary.
Residents often live in their own room or apartment within a building or group of buildings. They also often have some or all of their meals together. Social and recreational activities are usually provided. Some of these facilities have health services on site. Not all assisted living facilities provide the same services. In most cases, assisted living residents pay a regular monthly rent along with additional fees for the services they receive.
