What's the difference? My 80 year old dad, back in June started out his head they took hospital it was his heart. But even now we can talk to him and he's making sense, then next he starts talking about people and places from his past. Because of his long stay in rehab, we tried to bring him home. Well it was a mistake to bring him home. My brother tried to take care of him but my dad wouldn't stand and was incontinent all the time. He was pushing on brother, he was more confused then he was at the hospital. He was mostly so angry. We had to send him to a nursing home. They are trying to get a waver for Medicaid. They want so much information and some of it is hard find. In the mean time they are taking all Dad's social security except for what health insurance he has. I'm afraid they will take his house he shares with my 2 brothers who are living on Social Security. My older brother and my parents bought that house together so brother's name is on the deed. My brothers really need that house. The other problem is I'm sure if my brother's can pay the household bills they are each paying one bill dad was paying the rest but now with my dad in the nursing home my brother will need help with the household bills.
