The elderly primary caretaker has decided he is taking his wife home. He's bought a hospital bed and has 8 hours per day of basically babysitters lined up. The Nursing Home where she currently resides thinks she needs 24 hour care and medical supervision. The social worker is trying to work with him to set up a safe discharge plan but he doesn't think he needs that and is not cooperative.
He has been advised that doing this could affect not only her Medicaid benefits but also Medicare and her normal insurance coverages. He says he doesn't care. Her primary care doctor is on record saying he will not care for her if she is returned home against medical advice.
Can anyone tell me their own experiences with this? (I do not need suggestions for action to take. There is nothing I can do. I'm just an interested bystander.)
