VA benefits for memory care in San Diego

Senior veterans in San Diego can use a variety of veteran services programs. California’s program, CalVet, helps seniors access a Veterans Benefit Enhancement Program (or VBE). The VBE gives seniors the tools to transition from Medi-Cal to VA health care.

Veterans Pension program

Once a senior enrolls in VA health care, they can enroll in the Veterans Pension program. A VA pension provides monthly income that can be used to cover the costs of memory care. Your loved one must meet the following criteria to be eligible for a VA pension:

  • The senior hasn’t received a dishonorable discharge.
  • The senior’s annual family income and net worth meet congressional limits.
  • The senior served at least 90 days of service, including one day of wartime.

The senior must also meet at least one of the following:

  • At least 65 years old
  • Diagnosed with a permanent disability
  • Currently receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI)[03]
VA Aid and Attendance benefit

The VA Aid and Attendance benefit may be available to your loved one if they’re a veteran with a disability. This benefit distributes monthly payments that can be combined with a VA pension to cover some of the senior’s memory care expenses.

A senior veteran must be enrolled in VA health care, receive a VA pension, and meet at least one of the following requirements:

  • Requires assistance with some activities of daily living
  • Has a disability that causes them to be bedridden if left untreated
  • Lives in a nursing home or skilled nursing facility
  • Has significantly impaired eyesight[04]
Housebound allowance

The Housebound allowance is another option for seniors who are enrolled in VA health care. This benefit can also be used alongside a VA pension, and it can help seniors with disabilities pay for necessary in-home care. To receive the Housebound allowance, a senior must meet the following requirements:

  • Receives a VA pension
  • Spends the majority of their time at home due to a permanent disability[04]

Seniors can apply for the Aid and Attendance benefit or the Housebound allowance if they’ve received acknowledgement from the VA that they need daily assistance or in-home care. It’s important to note that seniors can’t use the Aid and Attendance benefit and the Housebound allowance at the same time. You can apply for either the Aid and Attendance benefit or the Housebound allowance by downloading and completing the VA Form 21-2680.

San Diego Medi-Cal for memory care

Medi-Cal is California’s Medicaid program for people of low-income status. Medi-Cal covers health care services that occur in senior living, but it doesn’t cover the cost of memory care room and board. In addition, your loved one’s memory care facility must be approved by Medi-Cal in order for health care services to be covered.[05]

You can help your loved one apply for Medi-Cal through Covered California, which is the state’s health care portal that offers Medi-Cal and full-coverage health care plans to residents with low-income status. The online portal will also help you learn whether your loved one qualifies for Medi-Cal.

For assistance with Medi-Cal and its application process, you can use any of the resources below:

  • Contact the Medi-Cal Rx Customer Service Center or the city’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman for application assistance.
  • Review California’s Medi-Cal program guide and the Department of Health Care Services Medi-Cal qualifications.
  • Dial 2-1-1 San Diego and make an appointment to enroll in Medi-Cal.
  • When you’re ready, apply for Medi-Cal directly through the county or through Covered California.

Medicare memory care coverage in San Diego

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for seniors who are age 65 or older. Because Medicare only covers medical costs, it won’t cover the cost of room and board in a memory care facility.[06] However, some of your senior loved one’s medical expenses that occur during their time in memory care may be covered by Medicare.

Medicare has three parts that covers each of the following medical expenses:

  • Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, hospice care, and some home health care.
  • Medicare Part B covers preventive services, medical supplies, outpatient care, and some doctors’ appointments.
  • Medicare Part D covers certain vaccines and prescription medications.[06]

If your loved one is enrolled in Medicare, they may be able to use one of four Medicare Savings Programs in California. Find coverage options for one or a combination of the three Medicare parts and apply online. You can also use any of the following resources for assistance with your loved one’s Medicare application and benefits:

  • Contact the San Diego Social Security Administration Office or the local Aging and Independence Services for Medicare information and application assistance.
  • Use the local Long-Term Care Ombudsman program for further assistance and advocacy.
  • Receive support from the county’s Financial/Legal and Health Insurance Services via the Medicare Counseling program.

Understand California laws and regulations for memory care facilities

Understanding local memory care laws and regulations can help you find a facility that’s best for your loved one. The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) licenses memory care facilities in and near San Diego. Memory care communities must follow each of the following regulations to maintain their license:

  • Assess each senior via interviews and health record reviews prior to move-in
  • House no more than two residents per bedroom
  • Provide individual privacy in each bathroom
  • Ensure bedrooms have enough room to accommodate equipment such as wheelchairs and walkers
  • Provide clean and accessible common rooms for residents
  • Provide activities involving social, leisure, and daily living skills[07]

Caregiver requirements

Caregivers in San Diego memory care facilities must comply with specialized training and staff-to-resident ratios. Each caregiver needs to have a minimum of 8 hours of annual training on dementia-specific care. In addition, all memory care facilities are required to have one staff member awake and on duty at night. If there are more than 16 residents in the community, at least one staff member must be on call.[08]

Inspections

The CDSS performs inspections annually and within 10 days of receiving a complaint about a memory care facility.[08] You can find licensed facilities and their inspection reports on the CDSS Care Facility Search. Scroll down to “Search By Facility Group,” select “Elderly Assisted Living,” select the “Facility Type” and “San Diego County,” then click on the search button. You can also search by facility name or address.

COVID-19 regulations for San Diego memory care facilities

San Diego County encourages all residents to stay current with COVID-19 vaccines and to get tested if they have symptoms. Residents aren’t required to wear a mask in public unless they have COVID-19 symptoms, had a recent positive test, or were exposed to the virus. Many at-risk settings, such as long-term senior care facilities, require masks.

What to expect from memory care living in San Diego

If your loved one is experiencing memory loss, there are many care options for them in San Diego. Memory care communities are specialized senior living communities equipped with highly trained caregivers and therapies. San Diego’s memory care facilities also offer enriching amenities and activities, often within larger senior care communities.

Supportive caregivers and therapies

Caregivers in San Diego memory care communities are required to receive extensive memory care training to support seniors who have Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Not only are your loved one’s future caregivers well-equipped to assist them, but they’re also able to support your loved one with important therapies.

Therapies for memory care can help your loved one cope with and use strategies for their dementia symptoms. Reminiscence therapy, physical exercise, and art therapy are among some of the options available in San Diego memory care communities. Some communities may also encourage pet visits and pet therapy to boost residents’ moods and provide temporary animal companionship.

Several communities also include on-site therapeutic destinations. Meditation gardens, koi ponds, and calming spas can help seniors feel at peace during challenging times. Enclosed courtyards and walking paths are another common feature in San Diego memory care communities. Having enclosed spaces that are easy to navigate can help seniors feel calmer during moments of wandering, which is a symptom of dementia. Other helpful design features found in memory care communities include room personalization and visual markers to help seniors move safely through their environment.

Meaningful activities and amenities

San Diego memory care communities are designed to keep residents engaged, and they do so by offering activity programming that may include the following:

  • Beach outings via scenic bus routes
  • Interfaith services
  • Art classes
  • Fitness programs
  • High tea
  • Holiday celebrations
  • Resident-bonding activities, like movie and trivia nights

Senior-specific amenities also keep each day interesting. Memory care communities in San Diego may include the following desirable features:

  • Ocean views
  • Private beach access
  • Gourmet meals consisting of local produce and seafood
  • Restaurant-style venues
  • Koi ponds and therapy gardens
  • Full-service salon and barber shop
  • Heated outdoor swimming pools
  • Virtual reality fitness centers

Connected to more senior care

Many of A Place for Mom’s partner memory care communities in San Diego are part of either larger assisted living facilities or continuing care retirement communities (or CCRCs). Both options offer multiple types of senior care on one campus, enabling your senior family member to get the care they need as they age without having to move.

In several of these multilevel care options, you’ll find a variety of room styles. From studio apartments to two-bedroom apartments with private and semi-private options, you can find something that works best for your loved one. Some of these larger senior care communities also have specific memory care neighborhoods while still maintaining the connection to the rest of the facility.

Group homes and stand-alone memory care

Group homes provide assisted living and memory care services in smaller settings. Also known as residential care homes, they can provide the memory support your loved one needs in a homelike setting instead of a larger facility. Group homes may also have a higher caregiver-to-resident ratio and either private or semi-private rooms.

Stand-alone communities are facilities that only offer memory care services to seniors with dementia. They offer amenities and activity programming similar to other senior care facilities, like gourmet meals, chauffeured transportation, and engaging San Diego excursions. Some families find peace of mind knowing that their loved one receives care in a community designed specifically for their memory care needs.
