Sometimes it means a hospital stay followed by rehab care then long-term care in a nursing home.
With the average monthly long-term care facility costs from $7,000 - $10,000, many families are not prepared to deal with this cost. An option that many choose to help pay for this cost is Long-Term Care (LTC) Medi-Cal.
But, as with many government programs the amount of paperwork to fill out can be overwhelming. One of the most difficult tasks for the family is the gathering of the required information.
Being prepared for the unexpected is the smart thing to do.
