When an illness or disability makes it impossible to live independently, the thought of having to leave home to move into an assisted living or skilled nursing facility is naturally disturbing. Many people are also worried that if they need long-term care they will have to sell their home to pay for it, until they become financially eligible for Medicaid.
Virtually everyone would prefer to live in their own homes for as long as they can, and it costs the state less to provide care at home than in a nursing facility. Over the past several years, opportunities to receive long-term care in homes have increased. For seniors who are financially eligible, the “PDA Waiver” program provides care in the home paid for by Medicaid. While the Medicaid PDA Waiver program does not provide 24-hour care, it can be of great assistance for seniors who are partially independent or who have family or friends who can help as caregivers.
When planning for long-term nursing care, time works against you. It is important that families who have a spouse, parent, or other loved one needing long-term nursing care contact Los Scales Elder Law, an experienced elder law firm, for advice as soon as possible.
