VA benefits for memory care in Columbus

If your loved one is a U.S. military veteran, they may be able to receive financial support from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that can help cover the cost of memory care. Veterans pension benefits, such as the Aid and Attendance benefit, can help senior veterans and their surviving spouses improve their quality of life with supplemental income.[03]

Veterans service officers

Applying for veterans benefits can be a challenging process. Even eligible veterans usually require assistance or advocacy to successfully apply. You and your loved one can receive assistance and referrals from veteran service officers in your area by visiting one of the Ohio Department of Veterans Affairs field offices. As fellow veterans who are trained and certified in benefits offerings, veteran service officers are available to help Ohio senior veterans get the most out of their eligibility.

Additional assistance with VA benefits

For assistance with finding veterans benefits, you can visit the Ohio Department of Veterans Services webpage or contact your loved one’s local VA office. The Ohio Attorney General website offers information on additional community resources for veterans, including the following:

  • Financial support
  • Legal advocacy
  • Housing assistance
  • Rehabilitation

The VA oversees Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) in each state, including specialized departments for aiding veterans with disabilities and veterans of foreign wars. Find information on Columbus VSOs below.

Columbus Medicaid for memory care

Medicaid is a federal- and state-funded program that offers medical insurance coverage to U.S. citizens with lower income and/or with disabilities. While each state’s Medicaid program is a bit different, all Medicaid programs must follow federal guidelines. Ohio’s program is simply named Ohio Medicaid. To receive Medicaid benefits, your loved one must be enrolled in a managed care organization (MCO), and the agency providing the care services must be contracted with that MCO. Ohio Medicaid has programs that can be used to cover memory care.

Assisted Living Medicaid waiver

Ohio Medicaid offers an Assisted Living Waiver program, which is intended to provide coverage for qualified Ohio residents in an assisted living community, but it can also be used for memory care. The Assisted Living Medicaid waiver will cover costs associated with personal care and medical care, including dementia care. Room and board costs, however, will need to be covered by your loved one’s income or other private financial resources.

The Ohio Assisted Living Medicaid waiver can be used to cover two categories of services: Assisted living services and community transitional services. Assisted living services include the following:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • 24-hour emergency response
  • Housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation
  • Nursing services
  • Recreational programs
  • Transportation services
  • Daily meals

Community transitional services typically consist of moving a senior from a skilled nursing facility to an assisted living or memory care community, including moving their furniture and other household belongings.[04]

Ohio Medicaid PASSPORT waiver

The PASSPORT waiver is for Ohio residents age 60 and over. Eligible seniors can use this waiver to cover the cost of care in their own home, a memory care or assisted living community, or another senior living facility rather than moving into a skilled nursing facility.

The PASSPORT waiver can cover costs of care needs such as the following:

  • Personal care, such as assistance with activities of daily living, housekeeping, and meal preparation
  • Nutritional guidance and meal delivery
  • Adult day services
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Medical equipment

PASSPORT waivers also include basic Medicaid coverage and may cover costs such as prescription medications, physician visits, and hospital stays.[05]

Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid

Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid offers coverage for seniors and individuals with qualifying disabilities. To qualify for ABD Medicaid, Ohio residents must meet Medicaid’s basic eligibility requirements and meet one of the following criteria:

Qualifying individuals can use ABD Medicaid to cover the costs of medical care, as well as some long-term care services, such as memory care.[06]

If your loved one is an Ohio Medicaid recipient, their care can be managed through the Ohio Medicaid Consumer Hotline Member Portal. The Ohio Department of Aging has several Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) where Ohio residents can receive additional support with Medicare, Medicaid, and other services. A long-term care ombudsman can also provide advice and advocacy on your loved one’s rights as a resident in senior living, such as a memory care community.

Medicare memory care coverage in Columbus

Medicare is a federally funded program designed to extend health coverage to Americans 65 or older and individuals with qualifying disabilities. Medicare has multiple parts that cover different aspects of health care such as the following:

  • Inpatient hospital stays or skilled nursing care
  • Doctors’ services, medical services, and medical supplies
  • Prescription medications

Medicare health insurance doesn’t cover the cost of room and board in a memory care facility. It will, however, cover many of the costs associated with medical treatment, which includes dementia care. You can find more information on Medicare costs and coverage by visiting the federal Medicare website or by reaching out to a local Ohio Social Security Administration office. Qualified seniors may get help paying for Medicare deductibles and premiums through Medicare Savings Programs.

Your loved one may be eligible for dual enrollment in Medicare and Medicaid, which will enable them to pay Medicare premiums using Medicaid benefits. Through Ohio’s Medicare Premium Assistance Program, eligible seniors may be able to use Medicaid to cover their Medicare copays, premiums, deductibles, and more. If your loved one receives both Medicaid and Medicare and lives in a participating county, they can manage their care using the dual enrollment health plan program MyCare Ohio.

The U.S. Social Security Administration can help seniors receive access to Medicare support. A local long-term care ombudsman can help your loved one access the benefits they qualify for and advocate for their rights. A long-term care ombudsman can also investigate complaints of long-term care residents and help ensure that seniors receive the quality care they deserve. Find links to these resources below.

Understand Ohio laws and regulations for memory care facilities

Memory care and assisted living facilities, or residential care facilities as they are designated in Ohio, must be licensed by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). The ODH performs facility inspections before licensing the facility, and then a minimum of every 15 months after licensure. Ohio memory care facilities have the same requirements as assisted living facilities.

A residential care facility is defined as one of the following:

  • A facility offering accommodations and care for a minimum of 17 residents who are not related to one another
  • A facility offering accommodations and care services to three or more unrelated persons who are dependent on these services, with skilled nursing being offered to at least one resident

Ohio memory care staff requirements

While there are no minimum staff requirements for residential care facilities in Ohio, facilities are required to employ specific types of personnel. Memory care facilities have one additional staff requirement, which is that the facility must have a psychologist or physician either on staff or contracted to oversee the care of residents with late-stage cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Other staff requirements for Ohio residential care, such as memory care and assisted living facilities, are as follows:

  • An administrator who is responsible for managing the facility’s operations must be on the premises at least 20 hours per week and must also be available at all times when they are off-site.
  • If the facility offers personal care services, they must have one direct care staff member who is trained in first aid on the premises at all times.
  • If the facility provides medication administration, they must have a registered nurse, a physician, or a licensed nurse practitioner certified in medication administration on staff.

Staff in Ohio assisted living facilities, including memory care facilities, must meet the following requirements:

  • They must be free from diseases that could be transmittable to residents in their care.
  • They must be without alcohol or drug dependencies that affect their work performance and the safety of the individuals in their care.
  • They must be at least 16 years of age; if they are under 18, they must be supervised by a staff member who is at least 18. The administrator of a facility must be 21 or older.
  • They must undergo proper training for their responsibilities, as is outlined in Ohio Administrative Code Rule 3701-16-06.

Ohio memory care service requirements

Ohio memory care and assisted living facilities must provide residents with the following services:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Social and recreational activities
  • Laundry and housekeeping services
  • Three meals per day or a food-safe storage for residents to take care of their own food

Ohio memory care building standards

Ohio memory care and assisted living facilities must comply with building code standards for health and safety. All facilities must be approved by their local certified building department.

Memory care and assisted living facilities must have all plumbing, electrical, and sanitation systems in safe and working order. They must uphold standards for fire and carbon monoxide safety, have evacuation and disaster preparedness plans, and perform and document routine evacuation drills.[07]

You can access Ohio memory care facility inspection reports through the Health Care Provider Survey Reports. To look up a particular facility’s inspection report using this tool, select “Assisted Living Facility” from the “Select a provider type” drop-down menu, then narrow your search by entering the county, the city, or the name of the specific organization you’re searching for.

COVID-19 regulations for Columbus memory care facilities

Ohio memory care facilities are recommended to implement precautionary measures against COVID-19 in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Individual communities may have their own rules in place, so it’s best to call prospective communities ahead of time to ask what specific guidelines they have in place. The general guidelines are as follows:

Single icon image

Testing. Residents and staff of memory care facilities should be tested if they have come into contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 or if they are experiencing symptoms.

Single icon image

Masking. Masks should be worn by individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19, by health care workers who have contact with COVID-positive patients, and by individuals who are immunocompromised.

What to expect from memory care in Columbus, Ohio

These memory care communities offer the same leisure and care provisions of assisted living, plus additional offerings to match the unique needs of seniors with memory loss. Such offerings include the following:

  • Safety systems to prevent wandering
  • Activities designed to support cognitive function
  • Indoor and/or enclosed outdoor walking spaces

Columbus memory care support services

  • Round-the-clock care staff
  • 24-hour emergency response
  • Assistance with activities of daily living, such as grooming, bathing, and dressing

Multiple tiers of care on one campus

Out of our partnered Columbus communities offering memory care, 94% feature some combination of memory care, assisted living, and independent living, all in the same community. Multiple care types together offer more variety among residents, often providing more opportunity for friendships and social engagement, regardless of an individual’s specific level of need.

Communities that integrate multiple levels of care enable residents to conveniently transition to a support level that fits them if their needs change, making it ideal for aging in place. Additionally, since memory care units tend to have a lower maximum number of residents than assisted living, seniors who are in the earlier stages of memory loss can start out in assisted living as a more cost-effective option, and transition to the memory care unit at a later time, should they need more specialized cognitive support.

Columbus memory care amenities

Our Columbus memory care partner communities feature communal leisure areas and on-site conveniences, which include some or all of the following:

  • Indoor walking spaces
  • Enclosed outdoor walking spaces
  • Beauty salons/barber shops
  • TV and movie lounges
  • Patios

  • Libraries/media centers
  • Dining areas
  • Cafes/bistros
  • Central fireplaces
  • Game/craft rooms
