My mom has stage 4 lung cancer and is 80 years old. She fell and broke her hip and two ribs. She is in pain and doesn't want PT currently after two weeks of hip surgery. They are moving her from hospital PT to nursing rehab. We asked about long term care in case she goes longer than 20 days and they said she has to have cognitive issues to qualify. If she can't get her cancer treatments due to a broken hip can we file Medicaid and keep her in long term as she is refusing to try PT at this time due to pain? She sold her home little over three years ago in Texas and gave that money to her family as she knew she had enough for assisted living. Plus she wanted it put away to pay for her funeral cost. She only has enough to cover her assisted living but understand its very expensive if she doesn't qualify. Very confused if cancer qualifies for long term care under Medicaid.
