Mom (93) gets Dad's SS and less Medicare.
Owns a home/2acrenolein. Only 1 NH insurance company on her 1st day in. They take home, SS and less $40mo "for her"clear out home b4 padlock doors WHAT!? I couldn't believe what I was being told so i checked with other family and friends. IT WAS ALL TRUE,,, some of them didnt know this and due to emergency or necessity that called for 24/7 care for their parents, aunts or friends and only option was the ONLY NURSING HOME in our county. Being the only NH & so able to take these poor people's homes, land, all their money & many people didn't know this happens so some of them didnt even get family portraits, momentos, keepsakes or antiques that had always been passed on to next generation, and the land that had been in the family from 1st pioneers, up to 8, 9 generations of people that fought hard to get it, clear it, and all have worked so hard to keep it, I was horrified. No wonder there isn't any other NH in my little home town in SE KY, the only one has enough money from what they've confiscated, hoodwinked & stolen from our people, I bet those papers signed in a hurry by poor people are also poorly & hurriedly explained but written by wealthy lawyers with plenty of time to use lengthy "legalese" language that might as well be Chinese to some good kind people that I know and love. Now, knowing this, I wouldn't trust this business to care for my dog, which I adore, but there is no 'why' that I would ever let them even get near my Precious Mother. She was horrified too, she and I know many people that are there. If she needs nursing I'll hire one to help us, in her home or mine so I'll be right there with her. Mommy's still sharp minded so she. put her little farm, a piece from her grandparent's farm, that was a piece of their grandparent's farm, in my oldest brother's name along with other duties sacred to her heart. He will do a fine job, he's a fine man, the best big brother a sister could have, a lot like my Daddy... lol, except he's a Preacher. I'm sure Daddy would be even more proud of him. So I'm sorry I didn't really have a question, but I hope the info in my rant makes people question their local NH's, before hand if possible, but especially if it's the only one in their own small town. Best wishes and hugs to all Caretakers!
