We are committed to providing referrals to senior
services regardless of an individual’s economic means. There are
many services available now to help residents and their families
with more affordable options. We feel all seniors deserve a quality
lifestyle and a place you can call home. If you or someone you
know would like to live at an Elder Care Alliance community but
needs financial assistance, the following resources may be helpful
Companion and Studio Living. There
are many ways to enjoy an Elder Care Alliance community at lower
monthly rates without sacrificing any of our amenities, programs,

for a private studio apartment. Please let us know if you are
interested in either of these options and we can refer you to
the Elder Care Alliance community that best fits your needs at
a price you can afford.
