My mother who has Alzheimers has been living with us for the last 3 months after living in a nursing home for 2 years. She was on private pay to the tune of over $7000 a month for those 2 years. Now that her money is exhausted and her home has been sold, Medicaid has denied her claim which is why she is living with us. We are giving it our best, she is in adult day care 3 days a week, but even with that it is completely overhwelming with her becoming beligerant and more needy each day. We seldom get a good nights sleep, run our own business, have other family issues, not to mention we have lost all privacy and our own connectedness. My question is is there a type of nursing facility that takes people who have just their retirement and pension as their only income? Are there state facilities? I cannot imagine us being able to keep this up indefinitely especially seeing the needs and limitations getting more and more.
