Disabled seniors have to consider several criteria when they want to retire in California, say California elder abuse attorneys. They should get information about the services offered by the State, as well as take into account the advantages of retiring in California.
First of all, there are community-based services within the framework of the California “Bridge to Reform” Medicare waiver. This program can delay the institutionalization of disabled seniors thanks to personal care provided to disabled elder people by family members, caregivers and primary care physicians.
Another resource where the elderly with disabilities can find support is from the California Department of Aging, which works with Legal Services Projects to support them in their legal matters. In California, there are 39 projects of this kind that deal with different types of issues such as consumer fraud and elder abuse, social security problems, age discrimination and more.
The Older Americans Act and the Area Agencies on Aging provide nutrition services programs to California residents 60 years old and older, as well as to the handicapped and to disabled retirees.
Veterans who are disabled as a result of service-connected injuries are entitled to the Disabled Veterans’ Exemption from all property taxes in California, as long as the full value of a residence does not exceed $100,000.
California elder abuse attorneys recommend that disabled seniors who are looking to retire in California look into all of the resources available to them.
