Original Medicare

Getting Care in a Hospital,
Nursing Home, at Home and with
Hospice
Medicare Part A helps pay for
inpatient care in hospitals and skilled
nursing facilities. It also helps cover
hospice care and some home health
care. You must meet certain
conditions to get these benefits.
Medicare does not pay all of these
costs. You, or separate insurance,
must pay some of these costs, too.

long-time residence and give up some
independence. Ultimately it's got to be
their decisions. What you can do is
help them review their options.

find and hire needed help—home care
workers, lawyers, nurses or even
someone to mow the lawn. Many
straighten out finances and kitchens.
They may persuade clients that it's no
longer safe for them to drive.
