I'm back... and life just gets crappier with each pass week.
Last I posted not too long ago, I was concerned about my mother passing before my father and as it turns out mom is now in in-patient hospice and expected to pass in a week. Dad's mobility issues got worse so through the godsend of a social worker at his GP's office, I was able to get him back in a rehab facility for now. My fear is what's next? I am going to call the social worker at the rehab facility as I do not feel it safe for him to be discharged home. This is his third visit to rehab in 2 months and things are not getting better. He has trouble with most ADLs and is a bit incontinent.
I am in the process of finding someone to help me with the Medicaid app (still cannot find anyone charging under $6K) but if I push for him not being safe at home by himself does anyone know if rehab can help me get him into a more long-term facility? Or will they just discharge him? The money is the issue as he is Social Security Income only.
I am at the end of my tether with both parents in facilities, one dying, and me trying to juggle it all. Area on Aging has been helpful but they can only do so much.
Any thoughts? Again thanks, all. You have all been a great source of help and support.
