At A Place for Mom, we know that the cost of senior care can stretch family budgets to the breaking point. We also know that as difficult as it can be to get a true picture of a loved ones’ needs and then match him or her with the perfect senior care community, it can be even more difficult to figure out how to finance needed care. Understanding Medicare, Medicaid and what aid your loved one is qualified to receive can provide a solid foundation for making key decisions surrounding these issues. Unfortunately, while A Place for Mom can help simplify the process of finding a nursing home or assisted living facility, federal law prevents us from working with families who intend to use Medicare and/or Medicaid to pay for care. With this in mind, we’ve assembled this guide to help you independently find the right resources to help you find and pay for care using public funding.
