Medicare and AARP will pay for 100 days in rehab after a 3 day hospital stay and that wil give you time to apply for medicaide-have the social woorker help you they can get what you need easier than you can- they can get acceptance quickly because they want to be paid so make sure they do most of the work-they will if you tell them it is too much for you to handle-do not be afraid to cry-it works and if need be you can go to an elder lawyer nd charge the fee to the account of the elder they might charge a retainer but they can get the paperwork easily -he charged me five hr. so that meant he could do it in 2-3 hrs. easily-do not go crazy over it like I did-my husband died before I got to see social service after spending three horrible weeks trying to do it by myself except for the 45 min. the social worker helped me after I had a meltdown in her office and was amaxed how much she was able to do.
