Medicaid applications are very difficult and time-consuming. That’s why we’re here – to help our clients through this difficult time. You provide us with the necessary paperwork, we do the rest. Today we present you with the story of Orin, whose father needed long-term care in a specialized memory facility. With our help, he received Medicaid benefits he was entitled to.
After my step-mother died, we needed to find a place for my father to live as he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s several years ago. For a while, he was able to stay in his home with a grandchild living with him. As his disease progresses, we eventually had to move him into our home. After six more months and two trips to the hospital for infections, we had to transition him to a Memory Care center.
My father had savings to cover the first year of his care, but there came a point where I finally had to look at setting up Medicaid to help pay for his care. Having spoken with a cousin who went through the whole application process on her own, I decided to look for an eldercare resource planner to aid me in the application.
Using the website for the local aging services program, I found Eldercare Resource Planning and looked through reviews. After my initial consultation with an advisor, I decided to use their services. Eldercare Planning Resource provided detailed lists of the information I would need for the application, worked on planning the finances, and finally worked with the state’s Department Social and Health Services to obtain an Alzheimer’s waiver, or he would never qualify for the program.
Through their careful planning and communication with me, the application process went extremely smoothly. Thanks to Eldercare Resource Planning, I do not have to worry about how my dad will pay for the continued care he requires. I would recommend Eldercare Resource Planning to anyone needing to apply to Medicaid for long-term care.
