Assisted Living Concepts, a local provider of assisted living services, has voluntarily terminated their Community Based Alternatives (CBA) contract with the State of Texas and the Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS).
As a result of the contract termination, all CBA consumers currently residing at Millican House at 2601 E. Villa Maria in Bryan will be required by Assisted Living Concepts to find alternative living arrangements by May 1.
Officials with Assisted Living Concepts say there are five residents that will have to find new places to live.
So far, all but one have made arrangements.
Assisted Living Concepts says they elected to end their contract because CBA is now requiring anyone 21 and older to be admitted into facilities. The organization says they are designed to only house senior citizens.
Regional staff with the Department of Aging and Disability Services say they began contacting each individual impacted by this decision as soon as notification was received from Assisted Living Concepts.
DADS says it is now working with each affected resident and their loved ones in order to explain all options available to them and to ensure alternative placements for all.
CBA is a Medicaid waiver program that provides home and community based services to people who are elderly and to adults with disabilities as a cost-effective alternative to living in a nursing home.
