I received a bill for my grandmother's stay in the nursing home but I still don't have the guardianship just yet. Yesterday I signed the paperwork to be presented to the judge. The bad part, she's on vacation at the moment and to that I'm still paying my grandmother's bills on top of my own bills. What should I do before the guardianship is granted to me? Should Medicaid be contacted?? I know I will I have to call the nursing home tomorrow. I have been communicating with them too. I wish this would get easier.
