How people pay for memory care in St. Petersburg

Those looking to move a loved one into a memory care facility have a variety of ways to pay. This includes private funds, public funds, and veteran benefits. This section will go over private pay, veteran benefits, Medicaid, and Medicare.

Private pay methods

There are plenty of people who choose to use private funds for a memory care facility. Private pay is the accumulation of any resources that you or your loved one has accrued throughout their working life. This could be any or all of the following: pensions, savings, Social Security benefits, distributions from retirement accounts, income generated from investments, and inheritance. You could also use any of the following as private pay options:

Number of veterans who live in St. Petersburg

About 22% of St. Petersburg veterans are 75+

Veterans in or looking to move to St. Petersburg, Florida, can find benefits that can help offset the cost of memory care living. VA Pensions are useful in covering some of the costs of memory care living, as is the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. Aid and Attendance benefits have been earmarked for veterans who need special care on a daily basis with activities such as bathing, dressing, or eating. To be eligible for Aid and Attendance benefits, veterans need to be over the age of 65, have served in wartime, or are living in a long-term care facility.

While it is a wonderful benefit, A&A is known for having a complex application process. Fortunately, there are resources in St. Petersburg that can help. Pinellas County has a veteran and military resource guide to help veterans determine how to access benefits. Veterans services officers are another resource to help veterans with the application process; these officers have gone through this process many times with many veterans and know exactly how to check for eligibility, fill out the application, and connect veterans to benefits.

Veterans services officers can be found through veterans services organizations (VSOs). Several VSOs are located at the St. Petersburg Regional VA Office including AMVETS, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Paralyzed Veterans of America, and Vietnam Veterans of America.

Those who were disabled as a result of their service can apply for VA Disability Compensation. The same resources listed above can help with the process as well.

Medicaid

Medicaid in Florida is called State Medicaid Management Care (SMMC). Florida offers a Medicaid guide to help seniors understand the benefits and eligibility requirements. While Medicaid does not cover the cost of living in a memory care facility, Florida memory care residents can get in-home care through the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver system.

Within the HCBS waiver system, Florida offers support services through its Alzheimer’s Disease Initiative (ADI). ADI respite care is available for caregivers of adults who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or related memory disorders that may interfere with daily living activities. ADI also offers Memory Disorder Clinics and Brain Bank, which coordinates with Mount Sinai Medical Center to support Alzheimer’s research.

Florida’s Statewide Medicaid Managed Long-Term Care Managed Care (LTCMC) plans cover the costs of nursing care, chore services, and medical equipment and supplies for those who qualify. Within the LTCMC plans are two programs: the Long-Term Care (LTC) Managed Care Program and the Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) Program. To qualify, memory care residents need to meet two standards: financial eligibility and being in need of a nursing home-level of care without nursing home placement.[02]

It is important to note that each LTCMC plan contracts with its own providers, meaning not all facilities are covered under every plan. It is vital that seniors choose the plan that covers the facility they want to enter.

Florida’s State Health Insurance Program (SHIP), a Medicare program run by local Medicaid, is called Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders (SHINE) and offers counseling to seniors who need help connecting to resources. The local Area Agency on Aging and long-term care ombudsman can also help seniors get connected with useful benefits.

Those in Florida looking to apply to SMMC can do so through this website or by calling 866-762-2237. The application process can be a bit tough to navigate, so it is recommended that seniors in Florida use the resources available to make the process easier.

Medicare

Medicare is a federally run long-term health insurance program that can help offset some of the costs associated with memory care facilities. While it can help cover the costs of things like doctor’s visits, prescription medications, therapy, and dietary counseling, it will not cover the custodial costs for a memory care facility, such as room and board.

Florida Medicare Savings Programs can help eligible seniors pay for some costs like Medicare copays and deductibles, while the Drug Assistance Program can help cover medication costs. The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) helps seniors who need nursing home type care avoid nursing home placement by getting that care where they currently live.

Applications for Medicare can be completed through the Florida ACCESS system or through the local Department of Children and Families Center. The application can be arduous, so seniors will want to use local area resources to help with the process. The local ombudsman knows the process well, can answer questions, and help determine whether your loved one is eligible.

Applicants can also use the Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders (SHINE) program for free counseling around the application process. SHINE is run through Florida’s Medicaid program. Likewise, Florida seniors can go through the local Social Security office or the local Area Agency on Aging for assistance.

Understand Florida laws and regulations for memory care facilities

Memory care facilities are regulated the same way as assisted living facilities with one big difference: Memory care facilities require that staff have specialized training when it comes to caring for those with dementia or Alzheimer’s. While assisted living facilities are given a standard license to provide personal care, memory care facilities must receive a specialty license.

The Bureau of Healthy Facility Regulation licenses all memory care living facilities in Florida. Licensing is only accomplished if memory care facilities meet certain standards set forth by the Bureau of Healthy Facility Regulation; all memory care facilities are inspected upon licensing, with licensing needing to be renewed every two years.[03] Inspections cover food safety, physical safety, staffing requirements, and emergency procedures. You can find inspection reports via the Agency for Health Care Administration’s public records.

In memory care facilities, it is required that there is at least one staff member on hand at all times who has specialized training for dementia care; all memory care facilities are required to be properly staffed at all times.[03] Memory care facilities are also required to offer activities specifically for those who have dementia. Staff who directly interact with residents are required to take four hours of ongoing education each year, and staff who work indirectly with residents are required to take dementia-specific training three months prior to being placed in a facility.[03]

Residents also have to meet certain requirements. To be admitted to a memory care facility, one must have a medical evaluation no more than 60 days prior to moving in, or no more than 30 days after moving in. This evaluation is used to determine a personalized care plan for each resident in memory care.[03]

Senior activities in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is nicknamed “The Sunshine City.” It shouldn’t be a surprise, then, to hear that it is known for its beautiful weather and sunny beaches. Temperatures hover between the 50s and the 80s year-round, making it an ideal place for spending time outdoors.[05] However, there is plenty more to do in St. Petersburg than lounge in the sun; it is also a city that offers wonderful museums and other attractions for people who live in memory care facilities.

Art lovers can enjoy a day at one of the many art museums spread throughout St. Petersburg. The Dalí Museum shows off works spanning the entire life of famous artist Salvador Dalí. If you are a lover of glass, you can find plenty of it at the Duncan McClellan Gallery. In fact, St. Petersburg is kind of a glass lover’s paradise; the Morean Arts Center, aside from other exhibits, showcases the work of master glassblower Dale Chihuly. Even better, both of these museums are free! However, the love for glass doesn’t stop there: You can also go to the Imagine Museum, which is home to thousands of stunning pieces of glasswork. For a different medium, check out Charlie Parker Pottery. You can see amazing wares and even learn how to make some yourself, making it a perfect low-key activity for someone in memory care to enjoy with their whole family.

And, of course, we can’t mention attractions in Florida without mentioning the flora and the fauna! The Sunken Gardens started as a hobby in 1903 by George Turner; now, it is a special place where you can see rare plants while having a quiet and relaxing stroll.
