The vibrant city of Las Vegas, Nevada, has a population of about 650,000 and 11.4% of residents are over the age of 65. Seniors in Las Vegas have access to a number of medical facilities, such as Valley Hospital Medical Center and St. Rose Dominican Hospital, which has multiple campuses around the city.

Nursing homes provide skilled care and assistance for seniors who require constant help due to a disability or chronic illness. Nursing homes typically have licensed nursing staff and caregivers available 24/7. Due to the high staff-to-resident ratio in these facilities, this type of senior care is typically more expensive than other options. According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020, a semiprivate room in a Las Vegas nursing home costs an average of $9,155 per month and a private room costs $10,524 per month. Seniors who don’t require such a high level of care may want to look at assisted living or home health care options. 

This guide looks at senior resources and costs of senior living options in Las Vegas.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Las Vegas, NV

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.
