As a person ages, they begin the Elder Care Journey.  At first, the person may be in good health. But over time, chronic health problems develop and the person may need help to remain at home. VA benefits and Medicare can help to pay some costs, but eventually other governmental programs or private sources must be used.

The Elder Care Journey

As a person ages, they pass down what professionals call the Elder Care Continuum ... but what I like to call the Elder Care Journey.  At the beginning of the Journey, a person may be in good health - with no functional limits and living at home. At this point along the path, Medicare and supplemental health insurance "cares" and will cover acute health issues. But over time, chronic health problems develop and the person may need help to remain at home.  In time, memory or mobility issues arise and the person may need to move to an assisted or supportive living facility. Generally speaking, at this juncture, Medicare no longer "cares" and will not pay for care at the facility.  For some, there are governmental programs such as VA benefits that can help to defray some, perhaps all, of the costs.  At the next point along the Journey, a transition to a nursing home, Medicaid "cares" . . . if you qualify financially. It is at this juncture that almost every one exhausts their assets - if they fail to work with an  experience and knowledgeable elder law attorney. Before you, your spouse, or your parents risk the the loss of your home or the need to spend-down life-time savings call for a free telephone consultation.
