Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Conway, AR

Many seniors and their families use some form of financial assistance to help them pay for nursing care. The main options available are Medicare, Medicaid, and veterans benefits. These programs can be complicated, especially when it comes to benefit terms. Below, we give a brief overview of how these programs may be used towards paying for skilled nursing care.

  • Medicare: Medicare will typically cover all skilled nursing costs for the first 20 days of one’s stay in a nursing home and a portion of the costs until day 100. After 100 days in a skilled nursing facility, Medicare will not cover any part of the cost of the stay. While this is adequate when short-term care is needed, those in need of long-term care will need to either pay out-of-pocket or use another source of financial assistance.
  • Medicaid: Medicaid covers most of the costs of living in a skilled nursing facility for those who qualify. Care, room, and board are covered with no time limit, but residents may be charged for extras like specially prepared food or cosmetic services. Medicaid eligibility standards are strict and complex, so not all seniors are eligible for Medicaid benefits.
  • Veterans Benefits: Veterans receiving a VA pension may also be eligible for the Aid and Attendance benefit administered by the VA. Aid and Attendance is a monthly allowance that beneficiaries may use to pay for their long-term care, including skilled nursing care.

If these options aren’t available to you, check if your loved one has long-term care insurance or contact your Area Agency on Aging to ask about any local financial assistance programs for seniors.

Free Resources for Seniors in Conway, AR

Seniors in nursing homes and those at risk of needing skilled nursing care can call on the assistance of several regional organizations that serve older citizens for free. Those listed here can help with care provider complaints, transportation and durable medical equipment, among other services.

ResourceContactService
Faulkner County Council on Aging(501) 327-2895Faulkner County Council on Aging is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping seniors age safely and comfortably at home for as long as possible. One of its many resources is the delivery of freshly-prepared and nutritionally-balanced meals to homebound seniors. More physically able seniors can join the congregate meals program at the Hawks Senior Wellness and Activity Center. The organization can provide door-to-door transportation for members with no other means of travel.
CareLink(501) 372-5300CareLink is the Area Agency on Aging for Faulkner County. It provides numerous services for frail seniors recently returned from, or at risk of needing, care in a skilled nursing facility. For eligible residents, it can provide in-home care services, such as housework, medication assistance, and meal deliveries for those unable to cook for themselves. Additionally, its care coordinators can tailor a long-term health care plan that maximizes all the benefits and services available to the senior. CareLink also manages the ombudsman program, which advocates for residential care residents.
Arkansas Department of Human Services(501) 354-2418Many seniors receive support from Medicaid due to the high cost of nursing home care. Medicaid is administered by the Arkansas Department of Human Services, which, for Conway seniors, operates from the department's local office. To qualify for aid, the senior must satisfy the medical and financial criteria, which will mean submitting to a medical needs assessment by a physician and a review of financials by the Division of County Operations.
Goodwill Industries of Arkansas(877) 372-5151Goodwill Industries of Arkansas is a nonprofit social enterprise dedicated to helping vulnerable people in need throughout Arkansas. Its support services include a health equipment loan program from two Goodwill retail sites in Conway.

Loans are given on a first-come, first-served basis and can supply a wide range of pre-used devices, including wheelchairs, rollators and canes.
