Unfortunately not. Nor will Medicare pay for adult day care or any other form of custodial care.

If funds are limited there are many organizations in some communites that will offer services on sliding scale.

Contact your local Area Agency on Aging or Aging and Disability Resource Center...a great resource.
Perhaps yes and perhaps no. All depends if one is willing to provide every financial document that ever existed by ANYONE related to the applicant which has any financial connection to that applicant.
Will Medicaid pay if Medicare will not?
