This city has several facilities that provide expert care for seniors, including Northwest Community Healthcare, which features the Busse Center for Specialty Medicine.

Nursing homes are federally regulated institutions designed for older adults with profound, chronic illnesses or disabilities. These facilities provide skilled nursing, 24/7 medical monitoring, personal assistance and specialty therapies. Such extensive care makes nursing home accommodations more expensive than other senior care arrangements.

This is higher than the national average of $7,756. Individuals who do not need this level of support may find home health care or assisted living more affordable and suitable.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Arlington Heights, IL

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.
