Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Hot Springs, 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 to pay 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 Hot Springs, AR

Seniors in Hot Springs can access a wealth of resources aimed at enhancing their lives and providing support when it’s needed. These examples can help seniors in dispute with their care providers, those in need of medical equipment while still at home and veterans who don’t know what benefits they’re entitled to.

Long-Term Care Ombudsman(800) 467-2170The Area Agency on Aging of West Central Arkansas manages the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program in Hot Springs. Ombudsmen are advocates for seniors who may otherwise struggle to get resolutions to complaints about their facilities. For example, the ombudsman can investigate concerns about food quality, room temperature, changes to care costs and discharges without prior agreement. Families of residents can also contact the ombudsman if, for example, they have concerns about their loved ones' care plans.
Garland County Veterans Service Office(501) 622-3795The veterans' services officers in Garland County advise U.S. military vets and their dependents on the federal, state and local benefits to which they're entitled. Their support includes helping vets access, complete and submit all required paperwork when making a benefit claim. Military-specific support includes helping vets access their service records and apply for VA benefits, such as VA Aid and Attendance and Housebound Allowance, which are monthly payments that cover some nursing home and home health care costs.
Medical Equipment Loan(501) 321-0275Goodwill Industries of Arkansas is a nonprofit organization that operates two stores in Hot Springs that loan donated medical equipment to seniors in need. As the stores can only loan gently-used equipment previously donated, they may not always have the required device in stock. All loans are on a first-come-first-served basis. Examples of equipment include wheelchairs, walkers, crutches and bedside commodes.
Meals on Wheels(800) 467-2170Housebound adults aged 60 and older who reside in Garland County and have no other means of getting hot food can apply to the Area Agency of Aging of West Central Arkansas for free home-delivered meals. All of the agency's meals are approved by a registered dietician and contain at least one-third of the daily nutrients recommended for seniors. While delivering the meals every weekday, delivery drivers will also conduct a wellness check on the senior.
