I keep looking for info. over the internet about Medicaid/Nursing Home's rule about transferring Mom to another nursing home to no avail. Mom has Alz's Disease and is in Memory Care unit at a nursing home. They placed her there from hospital last April. The problem is it's too far and there are two nursing homes that have Memory Care close by. How do I start the process of transferring her to one close by so that I can be with her more often? I am her POA. Thanks in advance.

If this is indeed your desire which I imagine it is, you inform the Social Worker at the facility where your mother currently resides and ask her to send your mothers referral and clinical information to both of the facilities in your area. It is their responsibility to assist you with this transfer.

My brother had a stroke about 10 months ago which rendered him immobile. It's very difficult for me to travel to Durham when I need to see him to take care of personal business. My brother the patient (Daniel ) has been under Dr. care for about three or four yrs, being transferred from one facility to another, because they are not equipped to solve his condition. He was scheduled to have a
neck operation on the 23rd of May, however, it has been determined that he may not be strong enough. Instead he will have an MRI and blood work to determine the fate of suggested service. I feel he will be able to get more proper treatment if he had some family member to make decisions in my brothers behalf. I am his POA in reference to his health care. An expedient reply will be greatly appreciated.

Moving: at your own expense, not covered since it is not "medically necessary"
Crossing state lines: Do Not Attempt. Medicaid stops as soon as you leave the state. Again, no transport coverage.
Moving within the state: If you cross a county line, services must be coordinated with two different social service agencies. There must be an available bed. Transport is not covered, you pay.

I want to move my wife from one nh to one closer with better care. She is on medicare and medicaid. She had been in this same nh home before. The care is better and she knows the staff and it would be closer for me to travel. I am her home care giver and 2 weeks ago I had a minor stroke so it would help her and me to move her to the nh closer.
