St. Luke’s Home Residential Openings
St. Luke’s Home, a holistic assisted-living community in Tucson, Arizona, has residential openings for men, women and couples of limited financial means. Licensed at the Supervisory and Personal Care levels, St. Luke’s serves adults 55 years of age and older who are too frail to live alone, too independent to medically qualify for state assistance (ALTCS), and not wealthy enough to privately pay for assisted living.
Medical and Behavioral Health Criteria: Individuals interested in living at St. Luke’s must be able to evacuate the building in an emergency and must be able to transfer independently. Because of our limited scope of services in relation to behavioral care needs, we are unable to accept an individual who has had an acute psychiatric episode or psychiatric hospitalization within the past six months.
Financial Criteria: St. Luke’s serves low-income Elders with annual incomes less than $25,380. The community offers apartments on a sliding scale that includes three separate income categories based on the Average Median Income (AMI) for Pima County.
Fees are based on state and federal low-income housing guidelines. Cost for housing, food and care for each Elder is approximately $1850 per month, and St. Luke’s has devised three levels of subsidization that cap the number of individuals within each category. The formula ensures the adequate level of operational funding essential to keep St. Luke’s doors open.
Availability for individuals at each of the three levels:
- Income ranging from $500-$1057;
- Income ranging from $1058-$1762;
- Income ranging from $1763-$2115.
