I was in rehab at Brookdale Overland Park. My room was fine, but the place was more like a hospital. I had a modest but fine studio apartment and it was furnished for me. It was pretty institutional. I liked the staff since they were very friendly, caring, and kind. They had cards, Bingo, a library, lots of puzzles and...Read more Brookdale Overland Park reviews
My mother was at Brookdale Overland Park. The food was bad and the staff was not very good. We were not impressed. It looked clean and it was OK, but there were a lot of other places that looked better. The staff members had to be reminded of things, like giving her a shower. There was no way we were going to put her i...Read more Brookdale Overland Park reviews

Cost of Homemaker/Home Health Aide Comparison Chart
KanCare is Kansas’ state Medicaid program. It provides a variety of health care services to low-income residents of Kansas, including families, seniors and individuals with specific illnesses, such as breast cancer, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. Services covered by KanCare include doctor visits and medical treatment, dental care, physical therapy, counseling and prescription medications.
KanCare’s standard state plan provides financial assistance with the cost of assisted living in some cases. While this coverage is generally only available to those in nursing homes, KanCare will cover assisted living costs for seniors in long-term care facilities who receive a high level of care.
KanCare programs are funded by the state and must adhere to parameters that are determined by the federal government. KanCare provides free access to healthcare for elderly applicants with incomes of $62 per month or less. Those with incomes higher than $62 may be eligible for subsidized care which is determined by a sliding scale and based on income. KanCare’s spend-down program allows participants to pay for medical expenses before considering their subsidy amount. Applicants may not have more than $2,000 in countable assets.
To apply for KanCare’s standard state plan, seniors can contact (800) 792-4884.
Home and Community-Based Services Frail Elderly Waiver
KanCare’s HCBS Frail Elderly waiver was created to reduce the number of seniors who require care in the state’s nursing home facilities. It does so by providing additional care to those who live at home or in assisted living facilities. Services that are provided through this waiver include supervision and support services, dental hygiene care, nurse visits and financial management services.
To qualify for the Frail Elderly Waiver, seniors are required to be 65 years of age or above and may not have an income above $747 per month. Asset limitations are the same as those for the state KanCare program. Seniors are also required to undergo a comprehensive care assessment to determine their level of need.
To apply for the HCBS Frail Elderly Waiver, seniors can call (855) 200-2372.
Kansas Optional State Supplement
The Optional State Supplement is available to seniors and disabled individuals who reside in a long-term care facility or receive home care services. It’s a cash benefit that’s meant to assist its recipients with costs that aren’t covered by Medicaid such as room and board. The amount of the benefit is based on the applicant’s income and living arrangements.
To qualify for the supplement as an elderly individual, seniors must be 65 years of age or older and receiving the federal Supplemental Security Income benefit. Those who qualify for the optional state supplement are automatically qualified for KanCare coverage as well.
To apply, seniors can visit the Lenexa Social Security Office at 1537 95th Street Lenexa, Kansas or call (800) 772-1213.
Long Term Care Insurance from LifeSecure Insurance Company
In Kansas, LifeSecure Insurance Company offers long-term care insurance plans to those who wish to prepare for the future. Plans must be purchased before the need for long-term care arises. Premiums, co-pay amounts and deductibles often vary, so for further information, it’s best to contact LifeSecure at (877) 720-2165.
Life Insurance Cash-In
Seniors who own a life insurance policy may be able to cash it in to receive the funds they require for long-term care. When cashing in life insurance, there’s usually a financial penalty that needs to be paid by the policyholder. It’s important to consider that cashing in a life insurance policy renders it void, so it’s usually a good idea to explore other options first.
Senior centers are a great place for elderly individuals to gather and participate in community activities. They often provide a range of programming that includes meal services, educational seminars, senior social activities and fitness classes.
