Long Term Care Medicaid benefits help people who need ongoing medical or social support. Jefferson County Long Term Care offers options for our aging and disabled population. Long-term care Medicaid includes nursing facility care and home- and community-based services in which medical providers come into the home to render the necessary services to keep a disabled individual from being institutionalized in a nursing facility or hospital. Our goal is to provide assistance to any adult or disabled child at risk of institutionalization, who would not otherwise be eligible for Medicaid due to parental income and/or resources, get the help they need.
Our office must receive a completed Application for Assistance and the following:
A person needs to be financially eligible and medically eligible for Long Term Care Medicaid benefits. Adult eligibility programs promote stability and independence by providing financial and medical assistance to elderly and disabled adults.

Jefferson County Options for Long Term Care coordinates a variety of long term services that include medical and non-medical care to people who have a chronic illness or disability. Persons seeking our assistance must be in need of, or at risk of, nursing home placement.
Most long term care assists people with support in their daily living activities such as personal care, home making, adult day care, home modifications and medical services. Long term care may be provided at home, in the community, in assisted living or in nursing homes. It is important to remember that you may need long term care at any age.
