About a month ago my father was hospitalized and our doctor told us that with all he had going on and the toll that it was taking on our health 24/7/365, we were all going down hill quickly if we didn't do something. We agreed and placed him a facility that he has been in and really enjoyed. The staff and everything about the place is wonderful!
The nursing home recently told me, that all though my father has a list of ailments as long as my arm, more than 33 Rx's, insulin shots 4 times a day, vascular as well as Lewy Body dementia, cannot drive, has to searched down for his medication, can get list a one way hallway and another list as long as my arm; that he is higher functioning than most of the permanent residents.
My real fear is that the state of GA will turn him down for medicare and try to send him back home to us.
I have my grand daughter daily, her mother that had to undergo a double mastectomy last year (has another surgery on Monday!) and my husband that is 80% disabled as well as taking care of my mother long distance.
With all that my father has going on, could there be a possible reason for medicare to decline him that anyone is aware of?
