My uncle had a severe stroke that left him w/ cognitive impairments, memory loss, vision impairments, muscle weakness, limited mobility, and the inability to move right arm/hand. He went home to live w/ his son (who he was taking care of because the son never had a job/income or license) after he maxed out his nursing home stay (Medicare wouldn't pay anymore). The son has him on wait lists for all nursing/assisted living homes w/i 40 miles that take Medicare and Medicaid (only income is $950 Social Security (was around $3000 when working up to the day he had the stroke a few months ago at age 76), Food Stamps, no bank accounts, car was repossessed).The son has hit, pushed, swore at, and refused to care for his father. After many calls to Dept for Elderly Abuse (from neighbors, church, doctors) a social worker from the state finally stepped in-- nothing was said about the abuse, just that the son had too many cats (8), the place stinks, "is nasty," and is not livable (due to damage from cats, mold, no working tub/shower, leaky roof, no heat) so she is going to have the place condemned and says they "need to be out of there". I can't take him in because my landlord won't let me (already have 2 adults and 3 kids in a 2 bedroom). There's no other living relatives.
What now? How long does it take to get a place condemned? How long before they have to be out?
Would the State really just refuse to help the abuse situation and kick him out (he owns the home- paid in cash by a relative many years ago) and make him homeless?
He needs someone to administer his medicine, feed him, help him manage his diabetes, help him dress, help him bathe, and supervise him so he doesn't hurt himself or go out and get lost.
It seems all resources have been exhausted (211, Catholic Charities, social workers, churches, Dept Health & Human Services, etc).
