I look after my MIL who has Alzheimer's and she was diagnosed 5 years ago. She lives alone currently and has the past 5 years. I know she would qualify financially, information on financial qualifications are all over the internet and easy to find but nothing on whether a person qualifies medically. She used to be adamant that she was NOT going to a home, that people only put somebody in one of those places because they didn't want to fool with them. Well, now she's willing to go and talks about it a lot. Another family member says she wouldn't qualify. She's long had auditory hallucinations and occasional visual hallucinations. The doctor gave her something to help but she refuses to take it because it just knocks her out. She's to the point now where she's scared to stay by herself at night. If there was family available to either stay with her or have her stay with them, then I wouldn't even be posting this, as the arrangements would've already been made. What qualifies a person medically? Where can I find out this information? If she's scared to be alone then she shouldn't be. I just don't know where to start in helping her out of this.
