No one has actually answered your question.

Old Americans who are physically unable to be cared for at home are sent to nursing homes.

All their money is used to pay for their care and the family usually has to come up with an additional couple of thousand dollars a month to pay the nursing home.

If they can't afford to pay, the old person may be sent home to die in their own little hell or put in some kind of indigent area where they receive very little care.

Pitiful, but true.

Not true....Americans needing nursing homes but unable to pay themselves will be still go to nursing homes paid under Medicaid by the government....they're not as nice as some private pay patients enjoy, but they have to meet standards....

My wife and I have nursing home insurance.
