Boots, if your husband and/or you are on Medicaid in WI, then Medicaid care would stop at the State line.   You would need to apply and be accepted by Medicaid in Texas.

I can fully understand how overwhelming and exhausting it has been for you to be the sole caregiver for your husband.   You probably get zero time for your self and very little sleep.

Moving to another State is your choice, not a medical requirement, therefore it would be very difficult to find someone to help pay for the transporter between the States.   Could your daughter and her husband help with the cost?

Is your husband on Hospice because of his dementia, or another medical issue?   Does the primary doctor say it would be ok to transport him on such a long trip?

The only option I can think of is to place your husband into a nursing home in WI, and if your husband is on Medicaid, Medicaid will pay for his care.   I realize you probably want him home, but if you are exhausted, it isn't good for you nor your husband.   In the nursing home, your husband would be cared for by 2 or 3 separate shifts of caregivers.   I know this is a huge decision for you both.

I have been doing this all by myself and I am exhausted. I cannot do it anymore. Cannot. Thanks for your reply.

It sounds like a bad idea to move your husband with dementia from hospice. Your daughter and SIL can make arrangements to visit him in Wisconsin. If your benefits are all in Wisconsin, moving to Texas will set you and your daughter back financially. Stay put and ask daughter to visit you.
