Looking for 24hr care for grandmother on $2,200/mo budget
My grandmother (84) recently was diagnosed with dementia and told to need 24hr care. She only makes $1,234/mo social security and we are awaiting for the VETS funding (additional $1k/mo). We aren't able to find any nursing homes near that price, but did find a private home with disabled senior living who could take her but we're afraid she will try to leave or fight to go home (when she remembers) and not be stopped. She has a home, not sure how to or where to go about finding someone to live-in and take care of her or a nursing service to come in and if that is considered 24hr care? We are trying to do whatever possible to keep her home and not let medicaid take it away because my grandfather built it. My father is being quickly taken down because of this stress/pressure and his health, so I am trying to find any info possible to help with the pressure... I would GREATLY appreciate any info anyone could give me! Thank you so much!
