People are living longer and therefore may require help with basic tasks of living – bathing, dressing, personal care, housekeeping or preparing meals.
Estimates are that as many as 70 percent of people turning 65 can expect to use some form of long-term care during their lives. People with these needs and limited resources, may be eligible to receive nursing home Medicaid long-term care benefits. Currently Medicaid provides care for 2/3 of people in nursing homes.

- There are many rules for qualification, and they change.
- Qualification rules include specific needs, assets and income.
