Portable Assisted Living Services (PALS)

In Home Supportive Care

Portable Assisted Living Services is an assisted living program providing personal care and services for residents living in subsidized senior housing. Residents continue to pay monthly rent to the building. If eligible for the MLTSS (Managed Long Term Services and Supports) Program, there are no out of pocket costs for the PALS Program. If not eligible for MLTSS, residents pay a daily rate for services provided. Care provided is based on the individual needs of each participant in a manner that promotes their individuality, dignity, privacy, choice, and independence.
