Mom is 91, dementia, wheelchair bound. Her living expenses are 1600 a month. She gets $2200 through social security and VA combined.

VA won't help for in-home care and I was told since she is house bound- that disqualified her under Medicare and she doesn't qualify for IHSS either because her income is too high.

Is there truly no help for the lowest mid-income elderly?

Nana2Nanny, any reason why Mom continues to live at home when the VA can help her if she moves to a nursing home? I see from your profile that your Mom lives with you. How long have you been caregiving for your Mom?

Is she the widow of a Veteran, or a Veteran herself? Is she getting a VA pension, or Aid and Attendence benefits? I'm trying to bump this question to the top, so we get you some answers.
