My 82yr old dads on Medicaid, living at home alone since leaving AL 2 months ago. Had stroke last year, has diabetes, and diabetic retinopathy, declared competent. I'm POA,both medical and financial. He has a 55 yr old homemaker through Help at Home services (who had been a "close friend" of his for years)... she comes 3 days a week for 2 hrs each day. Dad does not allow her to clean because all he wants to do is jump in car and go shopping. He gets only $634 in social security check... while still living at Al his Medicaid got denied... I had to get bank statements from 2009/2014 to Medicaid... apparently when he signed up for Medicaid he did not tell them he had more property other than his dumpy a** trailer he lived in. The other day the homemaker "friend" sold him her BOSE radio for $100... she took him to US Cellular to buy an iPhone per his request..,he's declared legally blind and she knows it).
Am I wrong for being MAD about this??
Am I wrong for being P*SSED because she didn't contact me regarding these purchases?? She has my number and I check in with her to see how it's going with dad but I haven't with this deal BECAUSE I called her BOSS and reported it! Am I overreacting?? Today I'm calling his case worker...his cabin is turning into another dump slowly and NO I didn't expect anything different...since he's competent I couldn't make him stay in AL.
He has an outstanding bill at AL for around $20,000
Is there somewhere I can read about "rules" for homemakers or dos and dont's???
