Yes. Medicaid has a program specifically geared to keeping elders in their home (and out of expensive nursing homes) as long as possible. My mother had various in-home help paid through this program for several years in her small apartment. She has just moved in with my sister, and the aid will continue there, through a different county.

This program also covers attending adult day care programs.

Call her county Social Services and ask for a needs assessment. They can advise you if Mom is a good candidate for this program, and how to apply.

Good luck!

  • MFP through Medicaid is a special program that helps seniors avoid being institutionalized. The grant money has allowed states to set up an infrastructure to determine which nursing home patients are most likely to benefit from a move from an institutional setting.
  • It can be difficult to determine whether certain assets count toward Medicaid's $2,000 limit. As always, classification of countable and exempt assets varies from state to state, but retirement accounts can complicate Medicaid planning even further.
