Conroe is a Texas city that benefits from being situated near the W. G. Jones State Forest, Sam Houston National Forest and Lake Conroe. These natural wonders are one reason why so many seniors live in Conroe: 13.3% of the city’s 91,079 residents are 65 years of age or older. For medical care, the city offers the comprehensive services of HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe, plus an emergency facility run by St. Luke’s Health. In Conroe, the average senior pays $5,627 for semiprivate accommodations in a nursing home, a rate much lower than the national average of $7,756, per the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey.

Nursing homes meet the needs of seniors who require around-the-clock supervision and regular attention from medical professionals, such as nurses. That level of support comes with a relatively high price compared to other senior living options. If an older adult’s capabilities make assisted living or home health care feasible, one of those may be a more affordable and better-fitting option.

This guide takes a financially focused look at senior care options in Conroe. Then, it ends with descriptions of some notable Conroe-area services and organizations that focus on older adults.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Conroe, Texas

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.
