Slide notes:This slide reviews additional long-term care options. First, communities may offer various free or low-cost services for elderly or disabled people. These may include transportation, Meals-on-Wheels, personal care, assistance with errands or housekeeping, adult day care, and senior centers with social and recreational activities. Local programs are coordinated by state agencies. State Medicaid may pay for home health care, skilled nursing care, personal care, medical equipment, and other health services. An in-law apartment is a separate living space within a single-family home that has its own kitchen and bathroom. Local or state law may restrict the ability to have an in-law apartment on a property. 18
