Basically my mother was sent to a nursing home in PA because she had some blood clots and required a 2 person assist. I did some surprise visits last year and found my mother in a zombie like state and never taken out of bed, wasn't getting showers and lost total bowel and bladder control. I pulled her out of there and brought her to FL where she is now walking, recognizing voices on the phone and face to face visits.
This is a long story, but basically once I removed her they demanded total payment in full because they were working on putting her on Medicaid and of course I had to fill out financial papers so they knew how much money she had. That was in July and when I moved her, the assisted living facility I put her in was a private pay. So her money has gone quickly and I no longer have this $16,000.00 in one lump sum. I told them I would make payments and that's not good enough. They are threatening legal action and while I've been paying them monthly, the statement doesn't reflect my payments yet they are cashing the checks.
If I am making an honest attempt to pay monthly, can they still demand full payment? And what kind of attorney or advocate would I need to help me through this. I'm 70 yrs old and feel like I could use an assisted living facility myself. My mother is 89. Any suggestions would be truly appreciated.
