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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ethan J. Huizenga, Attorney at Law

Hi, my name is Ethan Huizenga, and I’m an Elder Law and

Estate Planning lawyer in Orange City, Iowa.

I’ve been practicing elder law and estate planning since 2008, and I created this guide because it is my mission to educate older Iowans and their families about the options available for their long-term care.

If you’re worried about maintaining your dad’s independence during his twilight years, this guide is for you. If you’ve heard a friend say, “I had to sell everything she owned to pay for Mom’s care,” this guide is for you. If you’re feeling hopeless after the state denied your spouse’s Medicaid application, then this guide is for you.

There’s a lot of misinformation out there about what the nursing home or the state will do with your life savings and what you can do to protect it.

If you want practical information about paying for long-term care, then click the download button below. Because this guide is for you.
