One person told me the nursing home was taking money out of that 50 stipend for adult diapers, toilet paper, Kleenex, toothpaste, etc. And way overcharging. She had to go and buy all those items, present the receipts, and get reimbursed for them. That was so her mother would have some money left over for haircuts, etc.
She was on Medicaid.
My Dad’s SS check starts getting deposited next month in the nursing home. We are curious about this.
