Resources and Awareness
Nursing Home Level of Care - Medicaid
Do you know what it means to meet "nursing home level of care" for Medicaid eligibility? Did you know that each state has different requirements? This article offers an overview, though it might raise additional questions.
At Dutton Casey & Mesoloras, we are informed on all things Medicaid and are here to assist you. Learn more about our Medicaid services here.
According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, more than 3 million people in the United States have glaucoma. The National Eye Institute projects this number will reach 4.2 million by 2030, a 58 percent increase.
Here are some ways to spread awareness:
Talk to friends and family about glaucoma. If you have glaucoma, don’t keep it a secret. Let your family members know.
The holiday season can be filled with family and friends, especially those you have not seen for a long time. It's often the time when serious conversations happen, as well. The Conversation Project is a great resource to utilize if you plan to discuss a loved one's care wishes going forward.
If you aren't sure how to move forward with the conversation, or you need help putting the care pieces together, you can reach out to Monica DiOrio, our Client Care Coordinator, for assistance.
