After serveral hospital and 2 short nursing home visits, I finally agreed to sign DNR and hospice care for my mom. Of course Medicare will only cover a short period of time and Medicaid would need to cover more.
I called the local Social Services office and was mailed a pile or required paperwork to be completed or information gathered. I myself am on Disability due to TBIs and mom is now incoherent and not speaking, thus unable to help, and am at a loss where some of the information could even begin to be gathered. The help offered from Social Services was if you have any questions please call Mr/Ms @ XXX-ZZZZ. I know mom will not be put out in the street by the nursing home, but sure make life miserable. Guidance on the Medicaid path would be appreciated.
