Unsure of legalities but here it goes-
My parents have lived with me for years. They previously lived at siblings till things got rough. My parents left and had all their mail forwarded to their new address which was my house. My sibling found this out and got angry. My sibling undid this and has had mail sent to his house where he controls everything.
My dad has since died. My mom lives with me. My moms stuff is locked away by my siblings. They get her SS check and mail -mailed to a home she doesn’t live in and they dole a small portion to me of about a third which does not cover expenses. I pay the difference.
It’s not like she is poor, she has enough to take care of expenses. Mom has savings that will outlast her and her needs as she has MDS and Dr is stopping treatment as of today and my heart is broken anyway.
My mom fell at my house. I was not home and she had caregiver I hired privately.
My sibling gets the letter of third party liability about this fall and plans to answer yes it was an accident.
Clincher is the letter is addressed to an address my mom does not live at. Will Medicare know she lives in a different city? If it came to my house I would answer no this was not accident she fell at her own house -but my sib has control so Medicare will get a letter of someone falling in a home in Austin.
It will have the home address of San Antonio, but that person really lives in Austin where she fell.
Do I call Medicare and tell them mom really lives in Austin?
Can they hold me liable if she should have a second fall. She is getting weaker.
I do not want my sibling to take this out on my mom in any way.
But there is not much more they can do except send her to nursing home This would be a tragedy.
