We live in Tennessee and she has medicare. I am not sure if she has Medicaid. I need to look into that, but she receives assistance for her medicare premium and prescription drug assistance. She has not been able to work since 2011. She is epileptic and initially she was on Disability approved income until she was able to draw her social security when she turned 65. Her epilepsy has gotten worse as of late to the point of incontinence and inability to care for her personal hygiene, prepare meals, eat & drink, and take her medicine properly (due to epilepsy and irresponsible behavior). She has started falling as well and cannot get up without assistance. She is independent for the most part (has never driven a car), but her bad days are becoming more frequent. Her neurologist has tried different medications, but they have not helped. I personally believe this is due to her eating habits, and overall health. She is obese, has high blood pressure, 2 hernias, and leg ulcers (open wounds that do not heal). I cannot solely provide care for her and it is time for her to be monitored 24/7 because she can no longer make responsible decisions on her own. I cannot afford to pay for assisted living and I know Tennessee has the "CHOICES" program which grants something like $1000/month if approved, but when we were interviewed, my mom answered the questions untruthfully regarding her level of help needed and we were denied. I don't know what to do. I feel helpless and now it is getting worse and I cannot quit my job or afford to pay for the care she needs. My income is above poverty level, but nowhere near enough to cover her needs. I feel like I am falling in a crack in the system everywhere I turn. I should also say that she has absolutely no assets of any kind and her SS check is only about $340 a month. My income is under $30k annually. Advice?
