Stroke victim getting worse with age...need help.
My mother had a massive stroke in 2007, and after that was and is a severe alcoholic mainly to deal with pain and poor quality of life. Nearly 10 years later, her right arm cannot work at all. She has had both knees operated on, and her stroke leg is very weak. Cognitively, she has gone so downhill. She keeps asking about a dog we don't have and will yell when talking about anything. She acts like she has early onset dementia which isn't surprising because stroke victims age much faster. She falls once or more a week. Long story short, we don't have much money but she can't live at home anymore. She needs nursing home type care, but we can't afford it. Medicare won't pay for it long term. We don't have money for a home nurse either. My father is at his wits end, and I need to finish my degree so I can have a life that I want for once. Please give me advice.
