Middlechildleft2, Sooo last yr. I posted about my deadbeat sis. Well mum is back in rehab, she went in hospital on the 14th, for gallbladder - gall stone the size of a baseball and needed surgery, then pneumonia (ICU) for 2 days, finally yesterday arriving at rehab. Mom can not stand for more than 1 minute, can not walk for than 4-5 steps with a walker, and get confused all the time. (*side note - last yr. PT and OT and Dr. said she was NOT ready to go home and needed a few more weeks in rehab, but she signed her out anyway.)Problem #1, medicare only covers 21 days, sis refused to get medicaid to pick up any balance, because it would also cover her staying in rehab/ nursing home. and Problem #2, she is already saying she is going home after the 21 days whether or not she is ready, Problem #3, Sis is also wiping out mom's SS $$ within 2-4 days after it is direct deposited in her bank. Sis does have POA as she drove mom down last yr. and had her sign papers, taking it away from the oldest sis.Problem 4*** Mom is being left alone 8-10 hrs. at night so sis can work 45 min. up the road, BIG CONCERN!, everyone I ask can not help me, they say my hands are tied. If it were a child that was not coherent, not able to be left unsupervised because of a High fall risk, the state would step in and help, Why wont anyone help with mom?? Worried the next time something happens she will not be strong enough to pull through.
