Can Medicaid cover senior apartments?
In a question I had asked two days ago about what to do about my very very toxic grandmother, many had suggested that I talk to my parents about applying for medicaid so that it can cover the costs of sending my grandmother to a nursing home. That would be great, seeing as how we can't afford the $3000 a month bill. BUT the thing is my grandmother can function independently on her own. She needs very little assistance to go about her day, and when I had called a nursing home they told me I would be better off searching for a senior apartment because those are much cheaper. Ive talked to my parents about applying for medicaid, but it would be really helpful to have some guidance. Does Medicaid cover senior apartments? I took a glance at pricing the other day, and one apartment was about $900, not sure if my family can afford that. Also, how would we get my grandmother to leave our house and not come back? She knows how to drive, even if we do kick her out to an apartment I fear that she may just drive back to our house and also complain about us to our family members (she can work a phone too). Are restraining orders an option for us?
