With a population of over 125,600, more than 14% of the city is over the age of 65. Simi Valley is aware of its significant senior population and has built a 22,000-square-foot senior center that caters to their needs. Here seniors can find meal programs, lifelong learning programs, health services and exercise programs.

Financial Assistance Programs in Simi Valley

Medicaid Program in Simi Valley

Medi-Cal is the California state Medicaid program that helps low-income seniors in Simi Valley afford senior care. It offers financial subsidies that often cover the entire cost of home and community-based care. Medi-Cal is an entitlement program, so every qualified participant is able to connect to equal services without program caps or waiting lists. Certain Medi-Cal waivers, however, are not entitlements, which means certain limitations may apply.

Single seniors can receive Medi-Cal assistance without a share of cost (soc) if their income in 2018 was below $1,012. The threshold for married seniors is $1,372. Those who wish to apply can contact Medi-Cal by calling 1-800-541-5555. 

Under Medi-Cal, seniors are covered for a number of health care services including preventative, primary and specialty care, vision and dental care, prescription medication, mental health services and hospitalization.

Medicaid Waivers in Simi Valley

Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Medi-Cal Waiver

This waiver covers a variety of care management services organized through a nurse or social worker liaison for eligible residents who want to find home-based or assisted living care instead of accessing nursing home or hospital resources. The Home and Community Based Services waiver helps pay for case management, private nursing, respite care and other long-term services. To apply or get more information about the HCBS waiver, Simi Valley residents can call the Ventura County Agency on Aging at (805) 477-7300. 

Assisted Living Waiver Program (ALWP)

The Assisted Living Waiver Program provides financial assistance to eligible seniors who need to access home or community-based care in a Residential Care Facility (RCF), Adult Residential Care Facility (ARCF) or subsidized housing. While this waiver is not available to Ventura County residents, it is available in nearby Los Angeles County for seniors who are willing to relocate. Read here to find out more about eligibility requirements and the process for enrollment. 

In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS)

The Home Supportive Services waiver is for seniors who wish to receive care in their homes rather than enter into community-based assisted housing or a hospital. Recipients of this waiver are able to select their care providers from among family members or from the HomeCare Registry which is affiliated with the waiver program. To access this waiver, seniors in Simi Valley can call the Ventura County Department of Public Services at (866) 613-3777. Our guide to the IHSS can be found here.

Other Financial Assistance Programs in Simi Valley

Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)

PACE is a provider program for Medi-Cal recipients aged 55 years or older with chronic conditions who prefer to receive home or community-based care. It coordinates a specialized care team and adult day care facilities to help seniors find assistance with activities of daily living (ADL). Those who successfully enroll in PACE will be covered for the same services offered by Medi-Cal, but cannot be subscribed to both programs at the same time. Low-income recipients don’t need to pay for services if they already qualify for Medi-Cal without a share of cost (SOC), but those with higher incomes will be asked to cover a portion of the expenses. 

Simi Valley seniors can find out if they live in a PACE service area and are otherwise eligible for the program by contacting the AltaMed Senior Center or the Brandman Center for Senior Care Los Angeles, which are the organizations responsible for administering the PACE program for the Greater Los Angeles area. 

Paid Family Leave

California’s Paid Family Leave Act allows family members to take up to six weeks off of work to care for a senior loved one if they meet eligibility requirements. A positive benefit balance has to be accumulated through payroll withholding taxes in order for one to build up a reserve in order to apply for bi-weekly payment from the state of California’s Employment Development Department.
