Long General Information

  • Medicare does not address the long term care and nursing home needs of our nation's elderly. Medicare covers only those nursing facility services rendered to help a resident recover from an acute illness or injury. In most cases, Medicare at a maximum provides for the first 100 days of care and only if certain conditions are met.
     
  • Two out of every three nursing home residents rely on Medicaid to pay for their care.
     
  • In order to qualify for Medicaid, seniors are forced to "spend down" their assets to less than $2,000 in most states to get the long term care they need.
     
  • More than eight of every ten Americans believe it is wrong for seniors to impoverish themselves to go on a government program for nursing home care.

The Demographic Dilemma

  • Every eight seconds in America, a baby boomer turns fifty.
     
  • Americans aged 85 and older are the fastest growing segment of population and the heaviest users of long term health care services. From 1960-1999, the 85 and older age group increased by more than 274 percent. Longevity is expected to rise for all ages.
     
  • Two out of five Americans will need long term care at some point in their lives.
     
  • Last year, the average cost of stay in a nursing facility was $41,000 per year. Only one in four Americans can afford private nursing home care for one year, yet the average length of stay for a nursing facility resident is 2.3 years.

Long Term Care Affects Women and Families

  • Family members are often the primary care-givers of long term health care. Increasingly, women—the traditional family care-giver—are working outside the home. A national study found that 80 percent of working caregivers reported emotional strain, 50 percent reported financial strain, while 40 percent missed work on a regular basis due to the health needs of an elderly loved one. 
     
  • Three out of four nursing facility residents are women.
