Q. My father is a veteran. Is there any help available to pay for a medical day program? Isn’t there anything out there to help someone who served his country in the army?
A. Yes, the Veteran’s Administration will pay for two days a week at an adult day program. There are a few things you’ll need to do first. Call Jacqueline Steuerman at 667-600-2683 or email [email protected] and she can assist you.
Q. My mom is incontinent and wears diapers. Do you offer assistance with toileting?
A. Yes, the staff is able to assist with toileting needs and can also bathe your mother for an additional charge of $10.00.
Q. Are you able to care for seniors who are confused, wander, and sometimes have episodes of agitation?
A. Yes, the staff at St. Ann has experience dealing with confused participants and is able to manage episodes of agitation as long as they are sporadic and do not occur on a daily basis. Participants may be discharged from the center if they become a danger to themselves or others. St. Ann is a locked facility that is perfect for those who wander because they can walk as much as they want but cannot escape from the center.
Q. Paying for adult daycare can be expensive for a senior living on a fixed income. What types of insurances will pay for adult daycare?
A. Medical Assistance will pay for adult daycare if the senior qualifies financially and meets the requirements for a nursing home level of care. Medicare does not pay for adult daycare. Some long-term care insurance policies will pay for adult daycare. There are also subsidies available through the Commission on Aging for Baltimore City for City residents and through the Baltimore County Department of Aging for those seniors who reside in Baltimore County. Call Jacqueline Steuerman at 667-600-2683 or email [email protected] for more information about funding sources.
Q. My dad lives with me and would like to attend a daycare facility. Do you provide transportation to your center?
A. Yes, St. Ann offers wheelchair-accessible transportation to and from the center to those seniors living within our catchment area. Please call 667-600-2680 to see if transportation is available for your dad’s area.
