This past year has been a rocky road. Different POAs, guardians, etc for my parents. At the beginning of this year I took over everything. I got their finances under control, I got them home health, I got my mom a Medicaid waiver to pay for home health and I'm working on medicaid for my dad. Everything was going so well... until I got the Medicaid waiver for my mom which only covers 30 hours a week (hence the reason my dad will be getting it soon too for hopefully 60 hrs/wk total). I think my parents are just not getting enough care and I expected that, but I didn't expect my dad to go to the ER today for falling. He's being admitted but now the social worker wants to talk to me about the safety of his home situation because he can't go home as she sees it. It's unsafe. My parents have no money - hence Medicaid - and I imagine if my dad goes to a Medicaid facility they will take his SS check which will leave my mom with only her SS check to live on, so she would also have to go to a Medicaid facility or a different apartment. I am at such a loss of what to do. My parents have a habit of going to facilities and feeling better again and wanting to explore their newfound joy for life by leaving facilities. I DO NOT want guardianship nor do I have money for court fees - I do not have the time or the patience or the mental health left to be a guardian, and I can barely function in my own life. I have DPOA and health care POA, and that's let me do a lot so far. I think if I talked to my parents very sternly and say that next time they go to a facility it's their new home for good they might just stick with it. I get that renting a normal house and being surrounded by their stuff is comforting, but they're alone 80% of the time. Hardly anyone visits them and they have no social life. Last time both of them were in a facility, they looked good and sounded mentally well. The only thing is, my mom has HATED all of her nursing homes and has threatened to call the police on numerous occasions for stuff her nurses didn't do. I don't think a nursing home in a 20 mile radius would take her again. My dad doesn't need a nursing home, but most ALs don't take Medicaid without 2 years of private pay. I guess my best bet is to wait for my dad's Medicaid waiver to go through so we can get home health in there 60 hours a week, about 8.5 hours a day. Maybe even request an extension for 80 hours a week. OF COURSE something has to go horribly wrong right as I'm on the brink of another big breakthrough in finding a new normal. I just want my life back. I want to travel, go to graduate school, get married, and find a good job that doesn't mind if I have the occasional family crisis. but I can't do any of that when sh*t like this happens all the time. Anyways, hope you're having a better night than me. Before you comment, here's some brief answers to common questions: My dad has Wernicke's Korsakoff syndrome - extreme chronic vitamin B deficiency Yes, they're young for both being disabled. I'm 21 dealing with this, and, no, there's no one who can help me much except for one aunt. No I don't have siblings. No I don't feel that I can leave them to their own devices and let them sink themselves onto the streets.
