Just north of Phoenix, Peoria, Arizona, is a small city that’s home to a little more than 175,000 residents. It’s close proximity to Arizona’s capital city means that residents have everything they need right on their doorstep, including the area’s major attractions such as the Phoenix Zoo and Desert Botanical Garden.

Seniors who love warm weather enjoy Peoria’s hot summers and mild winters. Peoria’s local attractions, such as Lake Pleasant and Sahuaro Ranch Park offer those living there plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy sunny weather.

Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS)

Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System is the state’s Medicaid program. There are a variety of health plans to choose from, but for this guide, we will focus on the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS) plan. The ALTCS is for seniors who meet the nursing home level of care requirement but prefer to receive that care in their home or in a community such as an assisted living facility.

Covered services for this long-term senior care plan may include medical, emergency dental (up to $1,000 per year), nursing facility, assisted living, adult day care, skilled nursing, respite, home meal delivery, behavioral health, hospice, and more.

Seniors interested in ALTCS must have a gross monthly income below $2,313 in 2019, and assets must not exceed $2,000. Interested couples need to consult the ALTCS Policies on Community Spouse PDF document.

ALTCS is an entitlement program, so there won’t be a waiting list. To start the application process, get in touch with the nearest ALTCS office.

Other Financial Assistance Programs

Aid and Attendance Allowance

Wartime veterans 65 and older, or their surviving spouse, may be able to receive a tax-free monthly monetary benefit that pays for assistance with activities of daily living that are received in the home, nursing home, or assisted living facility. The financial assistance can be as much as $2,984. The amount depends on the applicant’s status (surviving spouse, single, married, or both veterans and married).

Unlike some of the other financial assistance programs for the elderly that pays the facility or caregiver, this program pays the veteran or their surviving spouse directly. For income limits as well as more in-depth information about Aid and Attendance, click here.

LIHEAP helps pay electric or gas bills, past due bills, utility deposits, late fees, or reconnection fees. This financial assistance is available once every 12 months. Although funds are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, priority is given to seniors 60 or older, and certain others.
