My son's father who is 74 had his first stroke last July 2016. While in the hospital, he felt as if they weren't doing anything to help him so he had our son pick him up and he left w/ his walker. he continued to get better. In August 2016, he had a 2nd stroke. It was much worse. Was back and forth from the hospital to rehab several times. The only way the Dr would send him home is if he had 24/7 home health care at $14k per month out of pocket. who can afford that? He cut it back to 3 days a week. Meanwhile he discovered that he has prostate cancer. Monday Feb 13 2017, he had a care service taking him for radiation. While in route, he had a 3rd stroke. Currently still in ICU. Cant move any part of his right side. Nurses indicate that he'll not go home. If he goes to rehab, Medicare plus supplement will pay. If he goes to a nursing home, we've been told that they will make him sell his house and use every cent he's made his entire life before Medicare will kick in? He is terrified at the thought. Does anyone know if this is true? I would appreciate any advice. Thank you in advance.
