My mama had a stroke November 22, 2018 that left her paralyzed on her left side. When she got released from Rehab and went into a Nursing home her insurance (Blue Medicare/HMO) only paid for 20 days and we didn't have the money to pay for any more days. I applied for Medicaid after she got released and her application is pending. My brother was her primary caretaker because he lived with her until he got locked up for an old charge and a charge from last year. I have two sisters, one stays out of state and the other one stays about 45 minutes away but with her work schedule, she can only get up here one day on the weekend. I can no longer take care of her. I also have health problems, diabetes, balance problems (walk with a cane most of the time), osteoarthritis in my right knee, all toes amputated on my right foot, and I suffer from depression that I also take meds for. So I'm not able to lift on her anymore and especially the other day when I almost dropped her. Her doctor filled out an FL-2 form for her to be placed back into a nursing facility but working with a worker in Adult Placement, she wasn't able to find one. And the only other way to get her into one is if they found something medically wrong with her to admit her for 3 days and then place her. A friend of mine called the ER and explained to two nurses the situation and they told her to tell me what to do and that was call the ambulance to bring her to the ER and tell them that there is no one else to care for her. They couldn't find a reason to keep her and I wouldn't go back and get her for safety and health reasons on her part and my part. It's making me look like the "bad person." I have no one to help me at least before my brother got locked up, I could go over there and help him. I can't get her to her appointments because I don't drive or my appointments. But they tell me if there was no one living here, then she would have to be placed. I just don't understand how the law works with disabled adults who have no one to take care of them. So I'm alone in this situation now. I'm not able to do it.
