Nursing Facility Assessment
Individuals age 18 or older who are requesting Medical Assistance funding for nursing home care are assessed by a social worker to determine that placement in a nursing facility is appropriate. Although every case is unique, generally speaking, nursing facility placement is indicated when the individual can no longer remain safely in their own home and 24-hour supervision is required.
