  1. Community-based Adult Services - There are community-based adult services under the California "Bridge to Reform" Medicare waiver. As long as the disabled seniors meet certain requirements, the program will restore and maintain the ability for self-care for elderly persons with disabilities and work to delay any institutionalization for these disabled seniors. These programs rely on working with family members or caregivers, as well as the primary care physician.
  2. Legal Assistance - The California Department of Aging works with Legal Services Projects to help elderly people in California when it comes to legal problems and legal service needs for seniors with disabilities and those within their communities. There are a total of 39 California Senior Legal Services Projects to aid disabled seniors in everything from consumer fraud and elder abuse to social security problems, age discrimination, and much more.

  4. Nutrition Programs - California also offers seniors and the disabled with a nutrition services program that is funded by the Older Americans Act as well as the Area Agencies on Aging. This program serves California residents age 60 and older as well as the disabled. They will also deliver meals to disabled retirees age 60 and older who are unable to get out of the house.
  5. Disabled Veterans - California has the Disabled Veterans' Exemption in place, which reduces all property taxes for qualified veterans when the disability was due to service-connected injuries. This is for disabled veterans who are rated as 100 percent disabled. If a veteran qualifies for this, it provides an exemption from property tax for the full value of a residence that does not exceed $100,000.
