First of all, let me thank you all in advance for reading this and your helpful answers. So my grandmother started having the symptoms of dementia about 2 years ago and today at 77 years old she is at the point where you can talk to her normally, but tomorrow will forget the whole conversation. Slowly I'm noticing she is forgetting to shower or even eat lunch. I know at some point I will have to get some sort of assistance for her, but what I am trying to figure out is how to pay for all of this. From what I've found her Medicare Insurance doesn't cover in home or nursing home care. So I'm kind of lost as where to go. I've looked up prices for care and there's no way I can afford it, even if we used all of her SS monthly income. She also does have some money set aside, but it would honestly only pay for a little over 3 months of nursing home care. It just seems like a waste to spend all her hard earned savings on 3 months of care. The crazy thing is, other than her dementia she is very healthy and can continue living for a good while. I was wondering if anyone else is in this similar predicament and has any tips or a guide of what to do. I'm asking now so I can prepare for the future so this doesn't all just hit my family by surprise. We live in Texas and if you need anymore information to better assist with my question feel free to ask and I will respond.
