How Can I Pay for Assisted Living with No Money?

how to pay for assisted living with no money

Assisted living is typically covered by long-term care insurance, Medicaid, and employee benefits programs. Medicaid is one of the most usual ways people pay for assisted living with no money available. However, you may need a prescription from your doctor to get the coverage.

Medicare does not pay for long-term assisted living facilities (only short-term stays up to 100 days), but they cover home health care for seniors. This is an acceptable option for those aging individuals who decide to age at home and receive home health care services that help them maintain independence in a familiar environment.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
