The coastal city of New Rochelle has a population of nearly 79,000 people, with close to 18% ages 65 and older. Seniors looking for a place to retire have access to multiple medical facilities in the area, including the Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital, Jack D. Weiler Hospital and the White Plains Hospital. New Rochelle is also 30 minutes from downtown New York City, which has NYC Health and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. 

Seniors who require 24-hour skilled nursing care also have access to multiple nursing homes in New Rochelle. A private room in these communities costs around $11,771 per month. These communities are for those who don’t require hospitalization but need more care than they can receive at home. Nursing homes provide increased supervision, health monitoring and therapies not typically provided for those remaining in their homes. Seniors who don’t require this level of care may opt for an assisted living community or choose home health care, which tends to cost much less.

This guide covers the different types of long-term care in detail as well as the differences in costs. It also provides a list of resources that aid seniors in the New Rochelle area.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in New Rochelle, NY

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.
