High-level nursing home placement is an art and a science. The benefits of professional assistance in the nursing home placement process may include (but are not limited to) the following:
• potentially securing placement in the highest level facilities as rated by Medicare regardless of financial ability to pay privately
• reduction of pressure and tension as the discharging facility sets deadlines and proactively seeks placement regardless of individual or family “readiness”
• peace of mind for the patient, their family, and fiduciaries
• optimization of all financial aspects of the nursing home transition, including all possibilities for asset preservation
