Find Care & Housing
I would like to point out that the paperwork and time it takes to get started takes forever. Don’t rely on the payment until it is in your hand. I have been in the process for 5 months and still nothing. Luckily I’m not doing it for the money- it’s just an added bonus since I had to quit my job.

Yes. There's a specific application for medicaid in home care, different than regular Medicaid. They'll assess the care needs and give a number of hours per week they're willing to reimburse for services. They don't pay as much as agencies so the folks that work for them can be unreliable.

I don't know about Medicaid (income qualifying) but if you get them on long-term hospice, Medicare pays for it.

If you are having surgery will u be going to rehab? What kind of help will you need? If therapy at home, the Hospital should set you up with an in home service paid by Medicare or your health insurance. You will get an aide too.

Medicaid "in home" goes by income. From my understanding, its also for people with on going problems not something used temporarily.

What I suggest, is talk to a Social Worker at the hospital ur having the surgery done. Find out what they do for you upon discharge. Find out what your health insurance will cover. Then you will have a better idea of what you may need to do. Call your Office of Aging to see if they can provide help.

I hope you get more help that was promised to us !
We were told that we shoulda let my brother die as he would die soon anyway. Hospice came and promised 2 baths a week and a nurse visit when needed ( this part was vague, but did not sound like much)
We were told in very clear language that there would be a LOT of work and I would be doing everything else.
We refused hospice because 2 baths a week was not much after he got a very thorough clean up at least 3 times a day.
Then came multiple calls from home health and the insurance company after we got home ( at least 20 different numbers daily).
And 3-4 loads of laundry daily and room clean up and trying to prepare food he would eat and diabetes care and more.
Please try to get accurate information about what they will provide !
Btw... it is almost 2 years now and my brother is doing well..without those 2 baths a week.
Amazon, oxyclean and white linen was our friend.

Medicaid in VA will pay for some home care, not 24/7 aides.

There are two kinds of Medicaid. Community Medicaid which pays for homecare and Long Term Medicaid which wiĺl pay for Nursing Home Medicaid. There are different levels of qualification for each.

Have you had surgery yet? Have you talked to the doctor about what kind of care you will need after?
