Using Medicaid & Medicare for Senior Care

Paying for senior care of any sort can be daunting, which is why it’s good to try and use every benefit available to you. Two common types of benefits people try to use are Medicaid and Medicare, but they have very different limits and applications.

Medicaid benefits for senior care:

Medicaid qualifications and benefits vary by state, but can cover health needs like:

  • Long-term care services including nursing homes and alternative communities

  • Home health services, like an in-home nurse and equipment
  • Personal care services

Concierge Care Advisors operates throughout Washington state. Learn more about how to qualify for Medicaid in Washington, and the specific benefits you get by contacting one of our Senior Advisors.

Medicare benefits for senior care:

National Medicare covers part of some hospital stays, doctors visits, and therapies—often around 80%. Such care might include physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, or a bath aide. Medicare typically can only be used following a hospitalization, for approximately a six week period, and at just a couple days a week. For long term care, Medicare isn’t usually able to help much.

But not to worry. Our Senior Advisors are skilled at finding care within your budget and figuring out other benefits you might be able to take advantage of. Just contact us, anytime.

Excellent service, compassionate and friendly. A true angel!!!! Thank-you so much! Concierge Care Services helped me when I needed to find an affordable facility for my husband, quickly. They gave me accurate leads and negotiated a rate I could afford. Thank you so much.

Concierge Care, particularly Rose Fabrick, was so helpful in finding a place for our dad to live. I know she is busy but she always returned calls, had good suggestions and was always available on our schedule. I can’t say enough good things about the service she provided and even after our dad chose a place Rose hadn’t dealt with she still called to wish us well and gave us encouragement. I would recommend them for anyone needing an adult care facility.


I think you are great i loved all your post they are so helpful love you

I can’t say enough about Concierge Care and especially Rose Fabrick.  I needed to find a specific kind of home for a person in a short amount of time.  Rose was diligent, efficient and worked with the family to get the placement done.  Good job  Rose!!!!
