As part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, Anaheim has long been a popular retirement destination for seniors. This warm and sunny city is home to more than 350,000 people, and almost 12% of them are aged 65 and up. In addition to its pleasant climate, Anaheim offers residents quick access to some of the area’s best hospitals. These include AHMC Anaheim Regional Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente Anaheim Medical Center, which has been rated as “high performing” in four procedures by U.S. News and World Report. Both facilities offer a full range of healthy lifestyle programs, specialty services and world-class emergency care.

Nursing home care is an option for seniors who can no longer live alone without significant assistance. It includes around-the-clock monitoring and skilled nursing services, plus personal care and help with a senior’s activities of daily living. The average monthly cost for nursing home care in Anaheim is $8,060. This is pricier than the national average of $7,756, so for those who can still live somewhat independently, assisted living or home health care may be a better choice.

This guide explores the costs of nursing home care in Anaheim, prices for other types of care and several resources for seniors in the city.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Anaheim, CA

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.
