I wanted to share a few links to resources in Georgia for those of you preparing to deal with a family member going into assisted living or nursing homes. Medicare doesn't typically cover much of this kind of cost. Learning about the options, including qualifying under Medicaid, is a wise use of your time.
About Long Term Care - This is a great list of resource links for families and the elderly in Georgia, published by GeorgiaOmbudsman.org.
Medicaid Information for Long Term Care - This is a nice summary of available information by the Georgia Legal Aid program.
Nursing Home Residents' Bill of Rights - Georgia - Atlanta Legal Aid provides this summary, including a list of rights all nursing home residents have.
