Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Rockwall, TX

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.

Free Resources for Seniors in Rockwall, TX

Rockwall can offer many resources to its seniors, some of which are listed here. These resources may help seniors delay entering nursing homes by providing in-home services. They may also help families choose the most affordable type of care for their loved ones.

ResourceContactService
Benefits Counseling(800) 272-3921The program is free for seniors and is administered by the Aging Services department of the North Central Texas Council of Governments. Trained counselors provide information on the various benefits available to seniors in Rockwall, depending on their circumstances. Examples of services include clarifying confusing aspects of Medicare, helping seniors enroll in Medicaid and informing them about other programs that may subsidize prescription drug costs.
VA Aid and Attendance Benefits and Housebound Allowance(214) 857-4201U.S. military veterans can apply for the VA Aid and Attendance benefit if they are in a nursing home or preparing to enter one. The benefit can be used to meet some of the facility’s costs. If the senior is able to live at home with home care support, they can apply for the Housebound Allowance, which can cover some of the home care costs. Both benefits are in addition to the VA pension and are also available to the surviving spouses of veterans. VeteranAid.org provides an online tool that can help vets determine if they are eligible. 
Meals on Wheels(972) 771-9514The service is available to Rockwall County residents aged 60 and over who cannot prepare their own meals or know someone who can regularly cook for them. The meals are delivered on the day they’re prepared under the supervision of a licensed dietician. Although the program is administered by Texvet, it is available to all qualifying seniors in the county.
Long-Term Care Ombudsman(817) 695-9196The long-term care ombudsman advocates for the rights of seniors living in Rockwall’s nursing homes. Ombudsmen are trained volunteers and employees who regularly visit senior living facilities to talk to their residents, listen to their concerns and investigate their complaints. Families of seniors in nursing homes may also contact the ombudsman.
