The 1st changed to a different type of care and she had to find another place. The 2nd was horrible all around and in 5 months she was hospitalized twice, and her dementia progressed rapidly due to anxiety. She is in the 3rd now and receiving Comfort Care, suggested by the dr because of how her dementia progressed. They keep her heavily medicated all day. Forcing Clonopin (sp?) down even while she was under the stupor from the last dose. My last visit was watching her sleep all day. She was trying to open her eyes and talk, but she couldn’t.
I live in FL and she is in NJ. I want to bring her to FL and looking for a nursing home that accepts Medicaid. I am assuming I can transfer her Medicaid from NJ to FL. What agency, if any, can I contact to help me with getting her here to FL and making sure all the paperwork is transferred correctly?
Before applying for Medicaid an irrevocable funeral payment of $10,000.00 was made to Choices NJ. I hope I can transfer it to FL. Does anyone have experience/suggestions for me?
