Just outside of Chicago, Glenview is a village that’s primarily residential. Over 1 in 5 of the city’s 47,308 residents are seniors aged 65 or older. For medical care, the village’s older adults may turn to the Glenbrook Hospital, which includes joint replacements and spinal, neurologic and vision care among its specialties.

In Chicago, according to the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey, the average nursing home resident pays $8,076 per month for a semiprivate room, which is slightly higher than the corresponding national rate of $7,756. Nursing homes are relatively expensive, but in return, they provide advanced levels of care, with residents able to access around-the-clock care and attention from professionals like licensed nurses and therapists. Seniors who don’t rely on such high levels of care may find that assisted living or home health care is a better, more budget-friendly setup.

The next part of this guide looks more closely at the costs of various forms of senior care. Then, it concludes with some resources that can meet a variety of the needs of Glenview’s older adults.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Glenview, Illinois

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.
