Vicki Nagel, have been a licensed Social Worker in South Dakota working in elder care for 30 years. I am strictly a “Medicaid Consultant” and should not be considered as offering, legal, financial, investment or accounting advice or decisions.
Applying for Medicaid can be extremely complicated. There are innumerable guidelines to follow and even simple errors can result in a denial of benefits. The consequences of being denied
by Medicaid are severe and can negatively impact the applicants’ finances and peace of mind, especially when one spouse needs to continue to pay the bills at home.
The Medicaid application and review process are time consuming and overwhelming. I can help alleviate this process with one on one guidance and save the applicant time and unnecessary stress.
Together, we will calculate and carefully plan asset protection to meet all income and asset requirements.
I will develop the Medicaid application, file the application
and serve as Authorized Representative and interface with the Department of Social Services on your behalf.

Understanding Custodial Care

Custodial care provides non-medical assistance to individuals who need help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, medication reminders, and housekeeping. The primary goal of custodial care is to support individuals in maintaining their independence, enhancing their quality of life, and ensuring their safety and well-being.

What is custodial care?

Custodial care involves providing non-medical assistance to individuals with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, eating, mobility, and other routine tasks. This type of care focuses on supporting individuals in their daily living needs without medical interventions.

Are there custodial care services available in Sioux Falls?

Yes, Sioux Falls offers various custodial care services provided by agencies, facilities, and organizations catering to individuals requiring assistance with daily activities. Families and individuals can explore local resources, agencies, or consult healthcare professionals for recommendations.

How does custodial care differ from skilled nursing care?

Who might benefit from custodial care services in Sioux Falls?

Individuals who face challenges performing daily activities due to age, disability, illness, or other health-related issues may benefit from custodial care services in Sioux Falls. This includes seniors, individuals with disabilities, or those recovering from injuries or surgeries.
