Last week, I shared with you, “How to Know Your Loved One is Ready for Long Term Care.” This week, we’ll look at the process of paying for long term care. One thought before we begin: long term care is never free. Depending upon their physical and mental needs, your loved one may require a short stay to regain strength, a permanent stay, assistance with all cares, a very secure environment, guided activities, trained therapists to guide improved strength and functional ability or to keep them moving throughout each day, as well as administrative, nursing, dietary, environmental services and maintenance staff. It takes a great deal of dedicated, compassionate personnel to provide exceptional care.
Because long term care is never free, the options below will give you an idea of how to pay for long term care. The list is certainly not exhaustive; therefore if you have questions or concerns, please call my office at 417-328-6252. I’d be glad to chat with you about this blog!
The CMH long term care staff would like to invite you and your loved one(s) to visit any of our six long term care facilities at any time. You are welcome to call my office at 417-328-6252 to set up your no-pressure visit.
All the Best,
