At Haym Salomon Home, Medicare is available to people over 65, provided they’ve spent 3 nights in hospital. Elsewhere, everyone is on the look-out to cut costs these days. If there is a way of giving the patient care at home, then that should be the preferred option. That way, you can avoid or delay the cost of stay in a nursing home.
Our financial services team works to ensure that everyone is happy with the decisions they are making. We have years of experience with health insurance processes and examine all options, taking cost into account. After all, the aim is, wherever possible, to reduce the cost.
It is estimated that around a quarter of us will end up spending time in a nursing home before death. The cost of nursing home residence is as long as a piece of string. It will depend on the location and quality of the nursing home, and primarily on how long you stay there.
