Hi,
  I understand that once a person is in a 'nursing home', paying with savings, and their savings eventually run out, then Medicaid (or Medi-Cal in Calif) will pay for the care.
 
  Is 'memory care' the same as a 'nursing home'? My mother has Alzheimers, and we'll be moving her to a 'memory care' soon, so I'd like to understand the semantics....
 
thanks

HI there
I am from Canada but I am sure that this would be considered the same and there is supplemental monies alloted for helping have her in care from my experience
Email me if you would like
I am sure ppl from the States may chime in and give you an idea as well
GREAT question ..thanks
