I need to lay the groundwork for Medicaid and nursing home placement. My 88 y/o father just moved in with me. His Father, younger brother, and younger sister all died from complications of Alzheimer’s. He hates doctors and medicines. My husband and I have to work and I can not afford private care or memory care. My Dad has absolutely no assets and brings in $1700 a month which is poverty level. He does his best to hide his level of confusion but we are one severe incident away from him not being able to stay at home alone when my husband and I are away for work. He has already cost us thousands and hasn’t been here a month yet. When we have to be away for work so far it’s costing $240 a week for 2 hours a day for the three days we’re gone. After talking to an agency that helps with filing for Medicaid and placement I was advised to get him into a neurologist and get a diagnosis. Now my biggest problem is selling it to him as he is in complete denial. Any suggestions?
