Custodial Care Detailed
Coverage: Conditions that must be met before Medicare will provide coverage, and limits to coverage.

Care is considered custodial when it is for the purpose of helping you with activities of daily living or meeting personal needs and could be done safely and reasonably by people without professional skills or training. For example, custodial care includes help getting in and out of bed, bathing, using the bathroom, dressing, eating, and taking medicine.
Medicare does cover limited skilled nursing facility care under certain conditions. For more information, see the coverage information listed under Skilled Nursing Facility Care.
