I gave up a very good job and full benefits because my dad became ill. He was living on his own 3hrs from me . I had to move him in with me as he has dementia. The hospital did not want to release him to be home by himself but his insurance would not cover any kind of at home care as he needs 24hr care . I had to pack up his apartment, continue to pay rent there because he signed a lease. so I have no income and no benefits , his monthly income only covers his own bills . leaving very little for food for himself let alone me.. My husbands job can barely cover our rent and can't pay the bills . I just feel like there is help for a lot of people that are capable of working. I have been to the state for health ins and food stamps and have not heard a thing back it's been a month I have worked hard all of my life. So has my Dad. I can not put him in nursing home . He is not ready for that . he just needs guidance and supervision . he's 84
Anyone know in the state of Maine what can I do. I myself have lost 20lbs and have no insurance to go to the dr . but I choose for my dad and husband to eat before me..
