How people pay for memory care in Plano

Paying for a Plano memory care facility for your loved one might feel overwhelming. But there are several options that can help, from private payment methods and VA benefits to Medicare and Medicaid; we’ll go over the options to help your loved one afford the care they need.

Private pay methods

Paying privately for a memory care facility in Plano essentially means ways you can cover the cost out of pocket. Private payment methods can include anything from personal savings and pensions to Social returns on investments. Here is a list of additional private funding sources you and your loved one may find helpful:

VA benefits for memory care in Plano
8043

Number of veterans who live in Plano

About 30% of Plano veterans are 75+

If your loved one is a veteran — or their spouse was — the VA has some benefits that may help your loved one pay for a memory care facility. Two of the most common benefits are the VA Pension and the Aid and Attendance benefits. Both of these benefits are paid out monthly to eligible veterans. The Aid and Attendance benefit is for veterans who need help with daily activities, are limited in their ability to get out of bed, live in a nursing home, or have significant eyesight problems.

Navigating the application process for VA benefits can often be the most challenging aspect. However, veterans don’t have to face this task alone. Dedicated veterans services officers are readily available to offer assistance completely free of charge. These knowledgeable professionals can be found through various channels, including the Veterans Administration, Collin County Veteran Services, or local veterans services organizations (VSOs) like the American Legion, operating in the Plano area.

The Texas Veterans Commission offers the expertise of Claims Benefit Advisors, who specialize in filling out VA paperwork and facilitating the filing of claims. While in-person meetings may entail a wait time of at least 30 days, individuals opting for a phone appointment can expect a significantly shorter three-day wait period. Rest assured, help is at hand for veterans seeking support throughout the application process.

Collin County has a helpful list of Texas veterans benefits you can review to see what might apply to your loved one’s situation before you get started. You can also watch VA Pension Benefits: How to Use Them to Help Pay for Long-Term Care, which is an informative video created by the North Central Area Agency on Aging.

Medicaid

If your loved one has a low income or limited resources, they might be able to qualify for Texas’ Medicaid program. Medicaid won’t cover the monthly cost of living in a Plano memory care facility; however, it will cover health care costs for your loved one. If your loved one is on Medicare, they can still check their eligibility for Texas’ Medicaid for the Elderly and People with Disabilities (MEPD).

If a doctor decides it is medically necessary for your loved one to have in-home health care delivered at their memory care facility, that may be able to be covered by a home and community based services (HCBS) waiver. You can help your loved one fill out this application for HCBS waiver services.

To help your loved one with a Medicaid application, use the Your Texas Benefits portal. If you have questions or need help, reach out to the North Central Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center, which serves Collin and Denton Counties. The center offers assistance with applying for Medicaid, and the help is free. You can also reach out to the long-term care ombudsman with questions. This Medicaid Made Simple video from the Area Agency on Aging of North Central Texas is an information resource if you’d like to learn more.

If your loved one doesn’t qualify for Medicaid, Plano has a program called Know Your Options, which can help those with memory issues (and their loved ones) pay for home monitors for people who may wander, personal care, respite care, and many other helpful items and services.

Medicare

Medicare is the federal health insurance program for seniors 65+, those who are disabled, or those who have end-stage renal disease. Medicare can pay for tests, doctor visits, and therapies, but it does not pay for room and board at a memory care facility.

If you want to help your loved one find additional Medicare cost savings, here are some programs to look into:

  • Medicare Savings Programs (MSP): For those who qualify, one of these savings programs can reduce or even fully cover the cost of Medicare’s premiums, copayments, or deductibles.
  • Extra Help: This program helps seniors by providing additional coverage for their prescription drug costs.

You can help your loved one sign up online for Medicare or download the Medicare enrollment forms and take them to the local Social Security  Administration (SSA) office, which is in McKinney.

For help with the enrollment process, The Texas Health Information, Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) provides the Texas Medicare Helpline. When you call, you can talk to advisors who can assist you with the process and answer questions. Benefits counselors can also be found through the North Central Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center; the long-term care ombudsman is also a reliable resource.

Understand Texas laws and regulations for memory care facilities

In order to operate, Plano’s memory care facilities must receive a Type B assisted living facility license from the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. They are then inspected once every two years (more often if there is a complaint). If you want to look at how Plano’s memory care facilities have fared on their inspections, you can find them on this long-term care provider search portal.

Memory care facilities in Plano must follow the regulations in this Texas Administrative Code and the Health and Safety Code. This is the same set of rules and regulations that apply to assisted living facilities; however, there are additional standards for Certified Alzheimer’s Assisted Living Facilities, which is how Texas refers to a memory care facility.

These additional standards for memory care facilities cover the safety and security aspects of the actual facility, as well as provide guidance around staffing, staff training, and activities that must be provided. Here is a summary of the expectations in place for Texas’ memory care facilities:

  • Two staff members have to be immediately available to help any resident who needs assistance in a memory care facility with 17 or more residents. Otherwise, a specific staff-to-resident ratio is not specified by law.
  • Staff members are required to complete specialized training to ensure they know how to provide care for residents with cognitive issues.
  • Memory care facilities must provide specific activities to encourage residents to socialize and participate in physical activity. These planned activities also have to be individualized based on what’s appropriate for each resident’s needs and abilities.
  • Memory care facilities must provide secured outdoor spaces as well as exit alarms to keep residents safe from potential wandering.

If you need to know how these lines connect to others, use this rail system map.

Senior activities in Plano

The North Central Texas Council of Governments has put together a resource list for people with memory loss and their caregivers. Here you can find things to do, from dementia-specific workshops to a list of engaging virtual activities specifically created for those with memory impairments to information about the Plano Memory Cafe, which is held monthly at the Sam Johnson Recreation Center’s Wellness Center.

The Plano Public Library also offers this Dementia-Alzheimer’s List of Resources that can help you learn more about these illnesses and inform your decisions on activities to do with your loved ones. You and your loved one can also visit the library twice a month for Memory Keepers, which is a relaxing get-together for people in earlier stages of dementia and their loved ones to share memories through guided prompts.

If you want to take your loved one out on the town, a good place to start is in the Downtown Plano Arts District, where you can find fun and relaxing events like Jazz Concert Under the Starz. Just a few steps away, you can enjoy Haggard Park, which is a great place for a stroll or sitting in the gazebo to enjoy the lakeside views.

While you are in the area, head over to the Interurban Railway Museum, where admission is free! Due to the historic nature of the museum, there are accessibility challenges, so you’ll want to check that before you go.

You and your loved one might want to visit The Sixth Floor Museum in Dealey Plaza, where the life and assassination of President John F. Kennedy are commemorated.
