Medicare, Medicaid, or Connecticut Title XIX, are public programs which may help pay for some long-term care services under certain circumstances. To accurately plan for your long-term care needs, it is very important to know the facts about what may or may not be covered. Medicare pays for short stays in a skilled nursing facility, but not personal care or long-term care.
Medicaid is a state and federal program for people with limited assets who cannot afford nursing home care and long-term care. 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.
