Contacting an A Place for Mom advisor in your area at (866) 568-2989 may also help you better understand what options may be available. The advisors are quite knowledgable about their area.
This link also helps a family understand some of the basic components of both Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare is a healthCARE insurance, Medicaid is financial aid. http://www.ehealthmedicare.com/medicare-vs-medicaid/ The think to keep in mind is eligibility for the Medicaid program is your state is means-based, and the program has strict income eligibility requirements that differ from one state to the next. It's a good idea to ask questions again, at your local Area Agency on Aging.
