Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Orland Park, 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.

Free Resources for Seniors in Orland Park, IL

Orland Park’s seniors have access to a wealth of free resources, such as the following examples. Other nonprofits focused on helping seniors are too numerous to mention here, but AgeOptions, the Area Agency on Aging for suburban Cook County, is a good starting point.

ResourceContactService
Oak Lawn VA Clinic(708) 499-3675Located less than 20 minutes from Orland Park, Oak Lawn VA Clinic provides a range of medical services for U.S. military veterans and their families. These include primary care, behavioral health counseling for individuals and groups and prescriptions. When necessary, the clinic refers seniors to the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital, which is approximately 30 minutes from Orland Park and has the facilities to offer a more comprehensive range of care.
Meals on Wheels Foundation of Northern Illinois(312) 967-4666Homebound seniors unable to prepare their own meals or have someone cook for them are eligible for this service. The nonprofit's volunteers deliver meals Mondays to Fridays, each meal containing balanced amounts of protein, vegetables, fruits, grains and milk, which correspond to a third of the daily nutrients recommended for seniors. All meals are free, although donations towards the service's costs are gratefully received. Regardless of the reason for not making a donation, no senior is ever refused a meal.
Long-Term Care - Medicaid(815) 740-5350Low-income seniors in Orland Park may qualify for Medicaid, which can cover some or all of their long-term care costs, depending on the results of a screening test. To be eligible, seniors must agree to the screening test, which is designed to determine if nursing home care is the best solution for their needs, prove their U.S. residency status, and identify their maximum annual income and assets.
Long-Term Care Ombudsman(888) 401-8200The Long-Term Care Ombudsman regularly visits seniors in nursing homes to educate them on their rights and investigate any complaints they may have about their care. The ombudsman advocates for seniors while pursuing resolutions with their care providers. Families of residents and third parties can also register complaints to the ombudsman. Complaints that suggest criminal behavior, such as elder abuse, are immediately referred to the proper authorities. Other ombudsman services include providing facility inspection reports to families looking for the best nursing home for their loved ones.
