Since there is always so much confusion on this topic I thought I would post this information I received. Its not the best looking website in the world, but it seems to have everything you need to know to navigate Medicare.
The Medicare Rights Center has worked with the National Alliance for Caregiving under a grant from the Langeloth Foundation to bring crucial Medicare information to the caregiver community. This tool provides hundreds of consumer-friendly answers on Medicare and includes a special section dedicated to caregivers. The caregiver section includes guidance on getting help caring for a loved one at home, caregiver rights and resources, respite care services and how to advocate on behalf of a loved one.
The tool can be accessed at Medicare Interactive Web
(remember… Medicare does not care where you live, it does not pay for assisted living or long term care)
