Medicaid does pay for memory care and assisted living, however the local Medicaid agency may have a limited number of facilities in which they will reimburse for their clients to receive care. I suggest that you contact your local Medicaid agency to find out if your mom would be able to remain at her current facility. Most Medicare counselors are happy to accommodate their clients, as long as they are receiving good and cost effective care.
Also, the director at her current facility, might be able to tell you if they have received reimbursement from the state Medicaid for any other residents of theirs.
Good luck to you in finding the best solution for your mom.
