Senior care costs are based on the location, the type of care provided and the number of direct service hours. In Daytona Beach, the cost of nursing home care in a semiprivate room is more than double the cost of all other types of care including assisted living. Homemaker and home health aide services are slightly more expensive than assisted living, and these in-home services do not include living expenses, such as rent, utilities, property taxes, home maintenance and food, which are usually included in the cost of residential care for seniors.

Medicaid is a national health insurance program that provides limited coverage for low-income, low-asset Americans of all ages. The federal and state governments jointly fund it, and in Florida, Medicaid and the Agency for Health Care Administration, a branch of the Florida Department of Children and Families, administer it.
To qualify for Medicaid in Florida, single seniors must earn no more than $2,313 a month in income from all sources, including pensions, wages, alimony, rent and investment interest. Seniors applying as a couple can earn no more than $4,626 in monthly income. There are also asset caps of $2,000 per individual and $3,000 per couple.
Medicaid considers all cash, bank account balances, investment real estate, stocks and bonds when calculating assets of an applicant. Excluded assets include household furniture, one vehicle, jewelry, non-revocable burial trusts and a principal residence valued at $585,000 or less.
Florida seniors aged 65 and older who qualify for Medicaid coverage and require care normally offered in a nursing home may be eligible for the Florida Statewide Medicaid Managed Care, Long Term Care Program. This program provides medically necessary services in the community or an assisted living facility in order to delay or prevent placement of the senior in a nursing home.
Services that may be available through the SMMC LTC include:
