Garland is a family-friendly suburb in the eastern part of the greater Dallas, Texas, area. Seniors living here have access to world-class health care, including services from Parkland Garland Adult Care Clinic and Garland Behavioral Hospital. Garland’s senior population makes up about 12% of its 240,000 residents. Some of these individuals may need care from one of the area’s many nursing homes. In Garland, these average $5,171 per month, significantly lower than the national average of $7,756, according to Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey 2020

Nursing homes provide 24-hour medical care and supervision for those with health conditions that make it infeasible for them to remain in their homes. Included with room and board are other features such as nursing assistants and licensed nurses available around the clock to monitor conditions such as diabetes, provide wound dressing and catheter assistance, or help with personal care and the tasks of daily living. Therefore, nursing homes cost more than other types of long-term care. For people who don’t require dedicated nursing care, an assisted living community or home health care services may be a better option. 

This guide covers the costs of different care types in more detail. It also lists some resources that help seniors in Garland and their families.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Garland, 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.
