Reason being Mom (85) has very limited finances available, does not own her own home etc. etc. She was recently injured from a fall and needs assistance with the day to day things, dressing, cooking, showering pill taking etc.etc. She has been staying with us but n one is home during the daytime hours and on occasion we need to travel out of town for work and do no feel that she can be left alone for any extended periods of time. She currently has Medicare but not sure about how Medicaid works and even where to begin. Thanks for any assitance anyone can offer!!
