Long-Term Care vs Nursing Care – What’s the difference?
People may refer to nursing care and long-term care as one and the same. Long-term care means that a person needs extra help with the activities of daily living to ensure they remain safe and healthy. Our care professionals provide assistance with using the toilet, getting into and out of bed & chairs, bathing, and eating.
Nursing care means that our nursing care center is staffed 24/7 by medical professionals trained to deal with health issues that could potentially arise.
At King’s Daughters Home, we a comprehensive range of long-term care services, including attendant care, nursing, and 24-hour supervision.
Please note – some therapies and levels of advanced medical care are not available at King’s Daughters Home including but not limited to IVs, tube feeding, and wound vacs.
How do we know when it’s time to move from assisted living to nursing care?
A medical assessment will determine what level of care is needed. Disease progression, progressive conditions, or injuries may mean that a person has significant deficiencies with the activities of daily living and now needs constant nursing care.
How does cost/payment work at a private pay nursing home like King’s Daughters Home? Does insurance cover the costs?
“Private pay” means that we do not take insurance, including Medicare or Medicaid. This is sometimes confusing to families who say “We thought Medicare paid for nursing home costs, or at least part of the cost.” In answer to this, please note - While Medicare and other insurance plans pay for skilled nursing home care after a major surgery or a 3+ day hospital stay, patients are covered for only 100 days of care per year. Patients and families must cover the additional costs out-of-pocket. In addition, Medicare does not pay for personal care (bathing, eating, dressing, or toileting) if that is the only assistance needed.
While people may qualify for Medicaid if their assets and income are limited, many nursing facilities (including KDH) do not accept Medicaid for payment. Long-term care insurance can help cover the cost of a nursing home stay. Veteran’s benefits may also provide a source of funding. This means that private pay is how many families must pay for ongoing nursing home care.
According to Senior Advice costs for nursing home care in Midland generally range between $245 per day and $278 per day. The average cost is around $248 per day, or about $90,338 per year.
Daily and monthly costs for nursing home care at King’s Daughters Home are substantially less with rates less than $75,000 per year.
