My uncle Alfred is 78. Before he went in a nursing home he lived by himself in rural northern California. He has no assets or income other than a monthly social security check. He does have two adult children but they live on the east coast and he is not in touch with either of them. About a year ago he had a medical incident and after he was released from the hospital, he was admitted to a nursing home in the area & has been there since. While he does need care and needs to live in a facility, he is cognizant and able to reasonably get around. Although his children aren't interested in helping him, my cousin and another uncle would really like to move him to Maine, where he has extensive family. He has literally no one in California. The current nursing home requires that nursing facility arrangements be in place before he is released. My cousin said it has been difficult to do this because he is not his son. I live in Texas & know nothing about elder care or how nursing homes work. Any advice on where to begin?
