No diagnosis. Looking for advice as I am overwhelmed at knowing how to best help care for my mom. She is bedridden and needs diapers change, very weak and fragile and in constant pain from intestinal and bladder issues. She is on meds at a board and care now. I am caring for as much as I can. I can’t have her live with me. I quit my job and came to help her due to health decline and wanting to support and love her. I need to go back to work and she needs a facility like a nursing home only she doesn’t qualify for Medi-cal and doesn’t make enough money on SS to pay for anything. She is stuck in a loophole. I’ve called social workers and other companies asking for help.
She has no actual diagnosis for the “failure to thrive” and just wants to die. There are no assets and family can’t help financially.
My Mom has had chronic depression and debilitating anxiety for most of her life. All the antidepressants, pill addiction and alcoholism to cope have left her with frail, poor overall health along with intestinal and bladder problems. She calls me constantly asking for Dr’s to help her. We have exhausted the Dr’s and psychiatrists and all tests. I don’t know what to do for her or how to get her care.
