Long story and I don't think 4000 characters would allow me to tell all the details of the past 6 weeks, but bottom line, both of my inlaws had medical issues causing them to fall a week apart. Both ended up in 2 different hospitals, Pop was discharged first on May 11th to a skilled nursing facility (he was walking when he went into the hospital (I drove from out of state to stay with him during the time MIL was in hospital), but when he was discharged, he said they put something on his legs and "put too much weight on them"...blood pressure cuff? He was in pain and hasn't been able to walk since. MIL was discharged to same facility 3 days later. They were on isolation wing (we learned after FIL was admitted there that there was a COVID case (per Area Agency on Aging Ombudsman. We were not informed.) So his 14 days quarantine was up last Monday, May 25th, and MIL the 28th. The home did not properly plan to test them to move them to another wing and out of isolation. FIL has deteriorated even more with the use of his legs. They both have a long list of diagnosis...MIL being delusional thinking she's been on a long trip and they were at the airport. The Social Worker, from day one, has NOT been helpful and has refused to do a Medicaid app for them (they had Humana Medicare), but financially, they both qualify for Medicaid. During the first 3 weeks they were there, the SW wouldn't update us at all (we did call daily to check on them and would speak to nurses). The one time the SW did call was last Tuesday right before 5 p.m. to tell us MIL was being discharged that Saturday (this past weekend), but "they will probably discharge them both together"...which was to a "personal care home" South of Houston an hour 1/2 away from their medical doctors, home, and all they know. We jumped through hoops and that home was a referral from supposedly a Dr. she knows that knows of homes (we had been searching assisted living all week...they did not have LTC policy nor did our parents have Medicaid (I'm working on that now). We called Friday about discharge to learn that they were ONLY going to discharge our confused mother...and the Ombudsman said that home wasn't on her list of licensed homes! We're so upset about that and that it's taken all this week for them to even get a POA signed and notarized correctly. We finally got a med and financial one done on both of them. They have 1 older car, very little in a checking account, and a home...they had 3 small whole life policies that we believe can go towards burial expense and we're learning of Irrevocable Funeral Trust...But what about their home? No notes, but they had a reverse mortgage at one time. It's appraised at about $160,000. We'll try to find out and call the mortgage co. to see if they owe anything back from what they borrowed against it years ago. Bank account doesn't reflect a payment. Is there some sort of trust that if it were sold, we could put the money in to be used towards their needs without the state getting it and without it knocking them out of the park on the resource limit for Medicaid? Seems letting the bank have it would be less trouble for us, but we don't want to be foolish if there's a way to sell and put those profits towards their needs. So many questions. And I know this is long and about as overwhelming reading and what we are going through...during a pandemic...because things weren't hard enough without one. lol. Thanks for any tips or advice if you made it this far. I just found this forum tonight. I'll try to not be so wordy in future posts.
