MediCAre does not ever pay for "companion" services, which is what your neighbor does. Depending on your state, MedicAid **might** pay for that, but first you must apply for, and qualify for, MedicAid or Medical Assistance. Contact your county Dept of Social Services (welfare office) to see if you qualify. The rules are you cannot have any more than $2, 000 in the bank and very limited income. Good luck.

I'm not sure what you are asking. Contact your local Area Agency on Aging or local Department of Social Services, there may be programs that you would be eligible for and your neighbor can get paid to care for you.

I don't really understand what you mean about posting your neighbor? Can you explain or rephrase a little more?
