Government Benefits For Seniors
Government benefits are essentially Federal, State, local (or a combination thereof) funded programs. The Federal government mandates Medicare, Social Security and the Veteran’s Administration. State Governments are responsible (with some Federal funds) for Medicaid and “Meals on Wheels” programs.
On a the County or City level, the Department of Elder Affairs oversees the Aging Resource Centers which provide such services as transportation, limited in home services and facility based programs, such as day care programs, meal sites and the like. Oftentimes, eligibility is based on physical and/or financial need and there may be a wait-list.
