Adult day health care is one of the most affordable long-term care options for older adults with chronic illness or other physical and cognitive needs (see our Cost Comparison chart below). The AGE of Central Texas Thrive Social & Wellness Centers accept payment from Texas Medicaid (through DADS, Amerigroup, and United Healthcare Community Plan), Veteran’s Administration benefits, and long-term care insurance. Members who qualify under these programs attend without paying any out-of pocket funds.
The private pay rate at AGE of $70 per day includes all nursing care, personal care, meals and snacks, activities, field trips, and more. If you are concerned about funding your loved one’s attendance, please contact us for assistance in identifying appropriate funding options.
