I have a friend in a nursing home. Which was necessary 2 years ago when he 1st came sick. He's much better now and with a little assistance we believe he can live alone. Does the nursing home do any testing to see if the person is capable? How do we get legal help as he is married but has been estranged for 8 to 10 years. Since he got sick she found he was getting SSDI and now she claims she needs his check 1395$ a month to live and he doesn't even get a pair of underwear from her. She does pay 750 a month back to the nursing home. Her and his 3 kids do not even visit him.
