Brookdale Country Day Road

Review by Rebecca | Consumer

My mother is a resident of Brookdale Country Day Road. We had some ups and downs, but the care is adequate. My mother's room is clean and comfortable. They have several community churches that come and have Bible study, they offer bingo, they offer trips for the residents to go out to eat, and they have movies for them...

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Goldsboro

Medicaid in North Carolina

Medicaid is a government-funded health insurance program that provides health coverage to low-income adults, people with disabilities, elderly adults and other eligible Americans. States are required to provide certain mandatory benefits under their Medicaid plans, such as doctor visits, inpatient hospital services and home health services. NC Medicaid, North Carolina’s Medicaid plan, covers these services, and the state also provides additional benefits such as nursing home care, podiatry services and optometry services.

To be eligible for NC Medicaid, seniors must meet certain financial requirements. Single seniors can have a monthly income of up to $1,012, while the income limit for couples is $1,372. The state also considers seniors’ resources when determining Medicaid eligibility. Resources include certain liquid assets, such as cash or retirement accounts, but do not include the senior’s home, car or certain other assets. The resource limit is $2,000 for a single senior and $3,000 for a couple.

Seniors who do not meet these financial requirements may qualify for Medicaid if they have high medical bills. The state’s Medicaid Deductible program allows seniors to pay for their own medical bills until they reach a predetermined deductible amount, which is based on family income. Seniors can be authorized for Medicaid once they reach their deductible.

In North Carolina, seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income are automatically qualified for Medicaid and don’t need to apply. Other seniors can apply for the program through the state’s online portal or by submitting a paper application to their local County Department of Social Services. Residents of Goldsboro can mail their applications to the Guilford County Department of Social Services, Greensboro Office, 1203 Maple St, Greensboro, NC 27405. Seniors who have questions about the application process can call 1 (800) 662-7030 to speak to a Department of Social Services representative.

Seniors may be able to receive assistance through the North Carolina Personal Care Services program. This Medicaid State Plan program is an entitlement available to seniors who reside in assisted living facilities and need help with activities of daily living. To qualify, seniors must need hands-on help with at least three ADLs. Seniors who need help with only two ADLs may still be eligible if they need extensive assistance with one of those ADLs. The Division of Medical Assistance conducts independent assessments to determine medical eligibility. To apply for this program, seniors must fax a paper application to Liberty Healthcare Corporation at (919) 307-8307.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

State and County Special Assistance

Seniors who live in assisted living facilities may be able to receive financial assistance through the State and County Special Assistance program. This program provides cash assistance that seniors can use to pay for room and board in licensed assisted living facilities. Currently, the maximum available payment is $1,182. Seniors’ individual benefit amounts are determined by subtracting their monthly countable income from this maximum available payment. Seniors may also receive a personal allowance of $46 that they can use for items such as clothing.

To apply for this program, Goldsboro seniors can visit the Guilford County Department of Social Services, Greensboro Office, 1203 Maple St, Greensboro, NC 27405. Seniors should bring proof of identity, bank account information, income information and other paperwork as noted in the program link above. Once the application has been submitted, eligibility decisions can take up to 45 days.

Assisted Living Bridge Loans

Seniors who need short-term funding for assisted living care may qualify for a bridge loan through Elderlife Financial Services. These loans may be helpful for seniors who need to move into assisted living immediately but won’t have funding until they sell their homes. The structure of these bridge loans is similar to a line of credit, and seniors can choose how much to withdraw each month. The funds are sent directly to the assisted living facility.

To apply for a bridge loan, seniors can call Elderlife Financial at (888) 228-4500 or fill out the online application form. Up to six people can cosign for the loan, and these cosigners do not have to be related to the senior.
