My mother has end stage COPD and had an exasperation last January which put her in ICU for 3 weeks. She then went to a repiratory care facility until May. In May, we brought her home and pay for nurses to come to the house and my family and I do as much nursing time as we can to save the money. We are getting low on funds at this point and Medicare does not pay for any private duty nursing. We have had an elder care lawyer who basically told us we would need to put her back in a home to get money for anything. When she was at the facility, she was in diapers, having seizures and getting multiple infections. Since she has been home, she has not had many issues at all. My father is not in the best of health either. I am looking for any avenues of assistance. We are trying to sell my father's business and may have to reverse morgage their house. Once those things are done, we can apply for Medicaid but Medicaid does not pay for Private Duty Home Health either. I feel like there is no winning. Please help!
