Mom lives with my sister and her husband who both work. We live in the state of LA and were told she does not qualify for Medicaid. The $22,000 will be used up in approximately 10 months due to a daily sitter in the home, medical treatment, compound medications, etc. She has Parkinsons and cannot stay by herself, so we must have a sitter during the day. My other sister who also works, alternates nights with the main caregiver. The outside sitter comes in at 7:00 a.m. and leaves at 5:00 p.m. Family tends to mom on the weekends. Is there any financial assistance available for situations like this? Also, is there financial assistance for alternative treatments; i.e., acupuncture, chiropractic treatments and supplements? She has tried conventional medicine and has side effects.
