Attleboro is a New England city with about 46,000 residents, nearly 8,000 of whom are aged 65 and over. The city offers affordable health care and access to high-performing hospitals, such as Sturdy Memorial Hospital and The Miriam Hospital in nearby Providence, Rhode Island, making it a good option for older adults managing chronic conditions. 

Nursing home care is for older adults who need around-the-clock medical monitoring and extensive personal care services. In these facilities, residents obtain services, such as medication administration, help with eating, bathing and toileting, mobility assistance and disease management. The Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey indicates that this level of care is costly in Attleboro, with seniors paying approximately $9,733 per month for services. Older adults who only need personal care services or short-term or intermittent skilled nursing services may save thousands of dollars monthly by opting for in-home care or assisted living

This guide highlights nursing home rates in Attleboro and how they compare to monthly averages in other cities, as well as other local care types. It also features a table with resources to help seniors obtain the level of care they need.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Attleboro, MA

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.
