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.

What our customers are saying


I have worked with Concierge Care Advisors many times with my clients. I personally worked with them recently when moving my Dad home from Philadelphia. They are LIFE SAVERS!!!! If you have a family member that needs help finding assisted living, CCA should be your very first call. VERY FIRST call :). There are so many things to think about and consider that I never really knew. They helped me find a great place for my Pops, helped me negotiate with the facility and helped me navigate my emotions as well! It’s a lot and I am forever grateful to Concierge Care Advisors.

Our experience was outstanding! Sally was patient, knowledgeable and quickly was able to put together zoom tours over a couple of days. We appreciated her going to rehab where my mother was so that Mom could also participate in the zoom tours. I can’t say enough about the service. Thank you.

Absolutely amazing people here who genuinely want to help you and your family. I had been struggling for the past year and a half to find my grandmother the care that she needed. I was on my own and had no help from family. I could not get anywhere with the assisted living facilities in my area and my grandmother’s caseworker kept giving me the run around. The day I was given Vannah Roberto’s contact was the day that my grandmother and I finally got the help we needed. She kept in constant contact, explained every step of the process and found my grandmother somewhere to live within 2 weeks! Its been almost a month that my grandmother has moved in to her new home and Vannah still reaches out to make sure she is happy. She really cared about us and I can’t imagine where we’d be if I hadn’t got in touch with her. If you need the help, please reach out to this organization! They are here to help you!

Julie was the point person for us to find a place for our 94 year old Dad. It was very stressful deciding the best care and Julie set up an easy zoom call with caregivers that matched the care our Dad needed. Julie was patient, kind and very thorough. The ultimate place we chose, was perfect for our Dad and were so thankful for Julie’s guidance. Months before this, we had so much frustration with no assistance and Evergreen passed Julie to us. She’s every bit an angel and we would highly recommend her to help anyone facing such a difficult decision! Thanks so much!
