Weatherby & Associates can guide you through the labyrinth of Medicaid and Long-Term Care Cromwell CT. Our legal team are experienced in all areas of Elder Care. Long-term care are services that address a person's medical needs and personal care needs. When a person can no longer independently perform the activities of daily living, assistance can be provided from a number of different resources. These sources include live in caretakers that can be provided by home-care agencies. Adult day care centers provide care during the day. Assisted-living facilities may be fine for some, while nursing homes provide higher levels of care.
Medicare does not pay for long-term care, rather, it was designed to cover short-term rehabilitative services. The government program that does pay for long-term care services is Medicaid. Medicaid is the payor of last resort for those unprepared to finance their care in any other way.
You must Qualify for Medicaid
Medicaid is a state and federal program for people with limited assets. CT Medicaid, or Title XIX, will pay for nursing home care and long term care for those who qualify. For conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer's disease, patients need supervision around the clock for their own safety. Medicaid, or Connecticut Title XIX, will pay for full time care in a nursing home - once the patient's assets have been liquidated. When an individual is going to need custodial care or must be permanently placed in a nursing facility, they must qualify for Medicaid.
