Three Steps to Choosing a Guardian for Your Child with Special Needs
Of all of the decisions that
parents of children with special needs confront, the choice of a 
stands out as one of the most difficult because the person serving in that role will essentially have to step into the parents' shoes and take care of the child.  And no one can really fill the parents' shoes. But parents don't have to dread this decision, especially if they follow these steps.

Resource: The Basic Rules for MassHealth Coverage of Nursing Home Care

For all practical purposes, 
in the United States the only 
"insurance" plan for long-term institutional care is Medicaid (called "MassHealth" in Massachusetts). Medicare pays for only about 23 percent of long-term care costs in the United States. Private insurance pays for even less. The result is that most people pay out of their own pockets for long-term care until they become eligible for MassHealth.
