My mother lives with me and is End Stage Renal Disease plus multiple other health issues. Today after leaving dialysis was a real eye opener. She could not breath and I had to stop by the local EMS office and ask for their help getting her in the house. #1, She needs a wheel chair but without a ramp a wheel chair is no good. So #2 we need a ramp. She thinks her debit card just works forever like I did when I was a kid, "just write a check". Well, we don't have the $150 to purchase the wheel chair. We are lucky to make ends meet. I am disabled because of a severe auto accident, heart bypass, 4 Total Hips, Neck & Back Fusion and the list goes on. We live in GA and I read somewhere where their parent was on a home waver of some type. It would REALLY be nice if Medicad would pay me or someone to assist my mother here at home to keep her out of the nursing home. She really doesnt want to go and I dont want to take her either. I can't imagine having to share a room with 2-3 other people. Yes, a single room. Can't afford assisted living- we have nothing. Can ANYONE give me any advice on where I might go to for immediate financial aid or at least something we could get pretty soon. I dont know how many more times the local EMS will come help her get in and out of house.
