Hello everyone. Thank you for listening. My 100 year old grandmother is living in assisted living in Texas, and my 76 year old mother is her caregiver. My gran has outlived her savings, and my mother is retired, and scraping by. As a result my wonderful husband has taken on the $4,000 bill for my gran's assisted living facility. My gran is not a US citizen (she is a permanent resident), so she doesn't qualify for any medical benefits. We've been paying cash for everything. It has depleted everyone's savings.
My mom just called to tell me that my gran lost her dentures. I think she put them in a napkin and they got thrown out. I'm guessing it's going to cost thousands to replace them. I honestly don't know what to do! I can't ask my husband to pay for it. My mom lives on social security. Even if we replace them, will she throw them out again? I can't stand the idea of her sitting around toothless, so my question is, what would you do?
FYI - there is no other family who will help. My uncle and his kids will not contribute.
Thanks in advance!
