At Evergreen we understand that making a decision to move into an assisted living can be emotionally and financially taxing. We are on a mission to provide the greatest quality care at an affordable price. We intend to remain an asset for the Greater Burbank Community.
If you are a US veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran, first of all we salute you, second, you may be eligible to receive a federal monthly pension—up to $1,800 per month – to help pay for personal care such as assisted living. Veterans Benefits can also help pay for things like, medications, transportation and more. At Evergreen, we have a dedicated person who can help you apply and walk you through the entire process.Download PDF
Assisted Living Waiver (ALW)
The ALW program, established in 2009, is designed for individuals who are enrolled in Medi-Cal and wish to reside in an assisted living facility as opposed to a nursing home. Residents are required to pay the SSI rate for board and care and Medi-Cal pays for the rest. We are currently accepting all residents that have applied and been approved to the ALW program.Download PDF
Life Care Funding
Instead of lapsing or surrendering life insurance – a policy can be converted into an irrevocable Benefit Account that makes monthly, payments on behalf of the individual receiving Senior Care. There are no wait periods; no care restrictions; no costs or obligations to apply; it is not a loan; and there is no need for premium payments. The Life Care Benefit is flexible and can be adjusted to meet changes in Senior Care needs.Download PDF
Tax exemptions may be available to resident and to families caring for them to help cover the costs of assisted living. Please check with your tax accountant.
