Known for its warm weather and enjoyable oceanfront, Lake Worth Beach is a city that many older adults call home. Until recently, the city was known as Lake Worth. Over 14% of the city’s 38,526 residents are 65 years of age or older. Living in Lake Worth Beach gives seniors access to the nearby JFK Medical Center, which specializes in stroke and spine care. Also in the area is the Select Specialty Hospital, which focuses on patients with complex medical needs.

In Lake Worth Beach, the average nursing home charges $9,095 per month for a semiprivate room, which is higher than the national average of $7,756, according to the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey. Licensed nurses and nursing aides are commonplace in nursing homes, which provide 24-hour staffing. These and other features make nursing homes a relatively expensive senior care option meant for elders with advanced needs. Seniors whose abilities are suitable for home health care or assisted living can likely find a better, more affordable fit with one of these options.

This guide’s following sections dive into the cost of nursing home care in Lake Worth Beach and area resources for seniors.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Lake Worth, Florida

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.
