The cost of senior care can stretch family budgets to the breaking point, and it can be difficult to get a true picture of a loved one’s needs and then match him or her with the perfect senior care community. Understanding Medicare, Medicaid and what public financial assistance your loved one is qualified to receive can provide a solid foundation for making key decisions.

With this in mind, we’ve assembled the Public Pay Resource Guide to help you learn all you need to know about paying for senior care with Medicare, Medicaid and other public funding sources. The guide also includes checklists and worksheets to help you step through the process of understanding and evaluating your options.

The Public Pay Resource Guide will help you answer the following questions:

  • What does Medicare and Medicaid cover?
  • How can I find and choose a senior care community that accepts Medicare and Medicaid?
  • How do I manage the transition from hospital care to a nursing home or assisted living facility?
  • How can I arrange for home care services via a Medicaid Waiver program?
