Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Little Rock, Arkansas

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.

Meals on Wheels(501) 372-5300Meals on Wheels is a nonprofit organization that serves nutritious meals to homebound seniors who are unable to prepare meals on their own. To be eligible seniors need to be aged 65 and over and not have assistance at home. Meals are delivered from Monday to Friday by a team of volunteers.

There is a small charge for the meals, but financial assistance is available. 
Trans Net Care Rides(501) 500-2216This company provides transport to seniors to medical appointments, shopping trips, hairdresser appointments and church services. They can even accommodate seniors in wheelchairs on request. Caregivers can be provided to assist those who have difficulty walking or need help during their appointment. There is a charge for each ride, but financial help is available for those who can’t afford it. 
SHIP(501) 371-2782SHIP is a federally funded program that aims to assist seniors looking at Medicaid benefits and options for financial assistance for long-term care. Counselors help the seniors to apply for any benefits that they are eligible for and explain how the benefits work.
