My mom has been approved for Medicaid and is back home with me. Medicaid pays for adult day care 2 days out of the week and a few hours of caregiving/homemaking. My question is how do I get even a long weekend or a week away by myself with our major shoestring budget?
I called up that care for mom service and they told me a minimum of $150 a day is the best they can find in my area (Tampa). Any other suggestions for my situation? No one else in the family is in a position to take care of her.
The Medicaid rep for my mom is more interested in proving my mom needs less care, less caregiving hours, etc than anything else so I don't feel like I can get anywhere with her.
