Elder Law Frequently Asked Questions

What is long-term care?

Long-term care generally involves the providing of assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, walking, using the restroom, eating, medication management, and other tasks.  It can be as limited as having a home health aid come to your home a couple of times per week to as complicated as having 24-hour care in a nursing home.

How much does long-term care cost?

Long-term care can be extremely expensive.  The average cost in Pierce County is $6,000 – $7,000 per month!  The cost will typically range from around $1,500 per month for occasional home care to $15,000 per month for 24-hour memory care for those with advanced dementia/Alzheimer’s.

How do I pay for long-term care?

There are 4 main ways to pay for long-term care.  The first is private pay, which is paying out-of-pocket.  The second is long-term care insurance.  The third is the Aid & Attendance benefit, which is available to certain veterans and their spouses.  The fourth and final way to pay is through the Medicaid program, which will pay for your care after you run out of money.
