I never intended to put my mom in a home. She has diabetes, liver disease & is a Dialysis patient. I left my good paying job to be her full-time caregiver. She sold her house 6 months ago & made approx. $80K. With this money, I bought a dependable used SUV for $22K, paid back my husband who shelled out $10K for my dad's creamation & work done to sell her house. $6K+ to my sibblings. We dip into this account for food costs & some bills since my husband has been out of work as an Ironworker. She has had hallucations for a few years but has gotten to the manic stage just in the past few months. Pass 2 weeks, she has fallen over 13 times. We have tried Abilify & Seroquel without luck. These meds made her into an invalid to the point where I had to hand feed her & wipe her after bathroom breaks. She wakes up every 2 hours at night because of people in her room or she sees bugs swarming her. She's confused & even tried too her leave the house at 4am looking for me. My husband helps as much as he can but we are sleep deprived & I'm afraid to drive home some nights. I even thought she may have had a silent stroke since she is so not herself. If I have no choice but to put her in a home for own safety. How would medicaid pick up the cost once her money is gone but she hasn't gone the mandatory 5 or 7 yrs without money to her name? She does get social security. I cannot afford to pay back the money that was spent. Anyone know how this works. My dad didn't leave anything but debt.
