My mom is in skilled nursing, will need transfer to another one long term. She has a good private health insurance through AARP, no long term care insurance and can't return home to live due to medical issues that have developed since a stroke. She has recently developed pneumonia as well.
I keep hearing about "100 days" and a patient is out of skilled nursing with medicare. Medicaid sounds like a nightmare, financially and other wise. We live in California and I don't even know where to start with the idea of what to do next.
Any experience with this? Suggestions?
