My grandmother has been in a nursing home for nearly 2-3 years but I have only been visiting her for the past year. Two months ago they notified me that she only had 2-3 months to live and they were moving her to hospice. She was never moved and later I was told it was because her Medicaid would only pay for one of the two (the home or the hospice).
I am not POA or anything special legally but today I was approached/cornered by the staff to be told they plan on kicking my grandmother out due to lack of funds. Saying she has over $200,000 in medical bills. I asked where would they take her and they responded that they "don't know." My uncle is her POA but I have been unable to get in touch with him and frankly don't know what to do or if what he has been doing is 'above board.'
My grandmother has severe Parkinsons (unable to move at all, can't muster enough strength speak low enough to be heard) and the care she requires can not be provided at home. Not to mention that she is divorced, kids don't talk to her, and I live with someone else so she doesn't have a 'Home' to go to. What do I do at this point? They home was asking for a letter to prove that some bank account belongs to her ex husband and not her? But he is completely out the picture for 20 years (restraining order against my Grandmother) so he won't be of help. How do I find out what's going on with her Medicaid and why it's not covering her bills? What can I do to ensure my Grandmother received the respect she deserves in death.
