Share Article

The uncertainty about the future as well as some uncertainty about the rules of Medicare with respect to nursing home coverage has many seniors and caretakers for seniors concerned. Retirement Care Guide, an online resource for retirement care and elder care seeks to clear up some of the confusion.

Medicare rules have a profound impact on the senior care available to our entire senior community and their loved ones. The Medicare rules on nursing homes often cause confusion and concern.

The fact that there is so much confusion regarding Medicare and their guidelines for nursing home care has led organizations like Retirement Care Guide to set out to provide some clarity and some piece of mind.

“When you have Medicare using terms like ‘under certain limited conditions’ in their guidelines for qualifying skilled nursing or rehabilitative services consumers are left scared, confused and almost paralyzed to move further out of fear of being denied coverage,” Andrew McPhaul of Retirement Care Guide explains.

“There is a real need for honest, accurate and unbiased information on Medicare coverage, nursing homes, retirement facilities and other resources that are vital to our senior community and their loved ones,’ McPhaul continues. “We set out to provide that information and we invite seniors and their care takers to visit our site to get answers to their most pressing questions,” he offers.

With the senior community in the United States growing rapidly, the need for accurate, clear and honest information is crucial. Unfortunately, for many consumers finding this information has proven as elusive as finding the lost fountain of youth.
