Where can my mother go besides a nursing home at the age of 52?
My mother is 52 years old and suffered from multiple strokes over two years ago. She has cognitive impairment, multiple diagnoses, takes over a dozen medications daily, wears depends and cannot carry out self-care. She does not understand money and has lost many memories. She also gets very confused. She wants to leave and has convinced the doctor to discharge her, but nor I or my sister have the ability to care for her full time. Her medical bills and nursing care have eaten away at her life savings and there is nothing left. There are no assisted living facilities or elder programs in the area that accomodate persons her age.
