Who live in Houston, TX? Both parents have memory issues. Dad is just home from REHAB recovering from hip replacement surgery and will likely not leave the house much. Mom needs to get out of the house because she's showing signs of major memory decline since my father's been home. (one week). I'm not sure where to look for an outing for her and thought of Adult Day Care. I'm wondering if anyone in the Jersey Village Area of Houston, Texas might have a suggestion and idea if their insurance might cover Adult Day Care. They have Texan Plus / Kelsey Seybold. Any suggestions are most appreciated.

Also, I think there are other charitable sources of aid for some of the adult day health centers.

Since the varies so much by location, I think your best bet is to find a center you are interested in and discuss the financial options with them. They certainly know where their funding comes from and can advise you about applying for aid.

Adult Day Health Care is covered by Medicaid in Minnesota.

Gail, the day care my mom attends has a number of participants on Medicaid which pays the approved daily rate. The catch is that the program has to be medically necessary which for my Mom it is in order to meet the need for brain stimulation and socialization. The center is specially certified for providing day services to those with dementia. This program also provides showers, help with toileting, etc as required by participants and has an RN on staff during operating hours of 7:30 am until 5:30 am. Also in my Mom's case her Medicare may pay for a limited period of time which occurred with Medicare changes implemented the first of the year.

There also may be a chance that Veteran's benefits may be available if Mom's spouse was in the military. Check the Veteran's Administration. Also see if there is a PACE program in your area, Program for All Inclusive Care for the Elderly. Also call your area Local Agency on Aging, within the Council of Governments.

Good luck!

Adult day care is not covered by any insurance or Medicaid. Most places have a sliding scale fee based on income. Your city hall or county social services should have a list of places.
