Dad needs a NH, His SS and Pension come to approx. $1,650.00 p month. survival expenses eat most of that up. How do we get him on medicaid. Been told he makes too much money to qualify. He is 83, has dementia with lewy bodies and total body atrophy, is functionally imoblie and incontinent. needs 24/7 care and 81 year old mom w early dementia can not take care of him at home any more. he was just hospitalized for severe dehydration b/c he had bladder cancer and refuses to drink sufficient amount of water b/c he doesn't want wet diapers. All resources that I have applied to for help say he does not qualify for services. Humana won't provide in home assistance of any type except MAYBE a nurse to ck blood pressure. They live in FLA. and senior services are a joke. Mom can't even drive to store to get their meds or food or dads diapers. I live in MA and beyond frustrated. Can't even get him free legal service to get a DPOA for him and mom. She only gets $610.00 SS per month. Can't they file separately for Medicaid, I am drowning in paperwork and hitting dead ends. Need help.
