How Do You Pay For Assisted Living in Delaware?

Care in a Delaware assisted living community is typically paid for by a resident’s private funds (e.g. savings, 401(k), pension, Social Security, etc.), long-term care insurance, and in some cases, VA benefits.

The Delaware Diamond State Health Plan—Plus (DSHP-Plus) provides eligible individuals with access to community-based long-term care services such as assisted living in order to reduce the number of older individuals who are placed in nursing homes.
