Today in the US, nearly all money spent on home care, assisted living and nursing home care comes from one of the following four sources.

  • Government Programs – Medicaid, Veterans’ Benefits and Social Security
  • Insurance Coverage – Life, Long Term Care, Medicare and other Health Insurance
  • Private Assistance – Non-Profits, Foundations and Pharmaceutical Companies
  • Personal Property – A Family’s Resources, Private Loans and Home Equity

Within these four categories, there are many hundreds of options. Some provide assistance, financial and otherwise, for any purpose and others are specifically designed to help with certain types of care such as home care or assisted living or for specific conditions such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s.
