She is in Orange County, CA and is approved for Medicaid and also has Medicare (United Healthcare HMO). I am trying to be prepared for more decline, but need more info about Assisted Living Waivers. I want to get her on waiting list which could take "9-12 months" I've been told. But how do I start the process??? and is a waiver what I need for her. She is currently on the Independent side of AL and her SS doesn't cover the expense, of which I supplement. I want to sit down and discuss this (I am her POA) with the correct agency/dept. Help!!!!
