Nursing home care may be your only option right now, but it may not have to stay that way. There are a variety of care options that can be both more convenient and less expensive.
With nursing care costing hundreds per day, it doesn’t take long to use up an entire life’s savings. Fortunately, there are other options available. Find out how to leverage the available private, state, and federal programs to protect your loved one’s financial legacy.
All care has a cost. At the nursing home, the primary cost is monetary and increases year over year. Learn what questions to ask the nursing home about level of care and type of room. And discover how to save money and protect your loved one’s independence.
Medicaid (also called Title 19) is often the first program people discuss with the nursing home staff. Some facilities even require you to submit an application immediately as part of the admission process. But that could cost you months of eligibility and thousands of dollars.
