In brief: Who pays?

Medicare does not pay for long term care, assisted living, home care, transportation.
So , yes, unless you financially qualify for medicaide, you will need to pay for residential care or home care(unless there is a skilled nursing need, then medicare will pay for a while in rehab or home care).
