Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in East Longmeadow, 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.

Greater Springfield Senior Services, Inc.(800) 649-3641Greater Springfield Senior Services, Inc. is a multiresource agency funded by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs. Its primary purpose is to offer services that enable seniors to remain at home and within the community. These include supporting caregivers through education and practical means, such as the provision of respite care. The agency also manages the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, which advocates for seniors in nursing homes and other types of residential care facilities.
East Longmeadow Nutrition Program(413) 525-5400East Longmeadow's seniors are offered two nutritional choices: one for those who can attend the senior center and another for those who are housebound. For a $3 donation, senior center visitors aged 60+ are served freshly-prepared hot meals that include a dessert and drink. The donation for home-delivered meals is the same, and in both examples, there's no income eligibility requirement, and seniors unable to pay are never refused a meal.
Senior Transportation(413) 525-5412The Tri-Town Trolley operates between East Longmeadow, Hampden and Longmeadow. For $1 per trip, it transports seniors in-town for any type of appointment, with the fare rising to $2 for out-of-town journeys. The service operates Mondays to Fridays, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Council on Aging Services(413) 525-5436The Council on Aging provides many resources for East Longmeadow's seniors. These range from practical in-home support, such as File of Life, a magnetized pouch with emergency numbers conveniently positioned on the senior's fridge, to health care proxy services, which enable seniors to plan for their own life support and make them known to key family members. The agency also specializes in services for the disabled, such as installing adaptive phone equipment in their homes free of charge and arranging an enhanced 911 service, which helps first responders understand and prepare for the disabled adult's unique circumstances.
