My aunt was admitted to the hospital after being found wandering down the highway over a mile from her home. She has been attending day care 5 days a week and I have been jumping through Medicaid hoops since last August. She clearly can no longer live alone in the Senior Residence. She has a diagnosis of Vascular Dementia but has gone downhill over the past month. The doctor admitted her yesterday to a rehab facility but said that he can only guarantee her 21 days there ... the rest is up to the therapists ... and she ambulates perfectly and probably doesn't have enough deficits for OT and Speech to continue working on. She cannot go back to her apartment as per the police, the building manager and common sense. We cannot afford thousands of dollars per month for Assisted Living or nursing home or private care. Can she be admitted to a facility as "Medicaid Pending"?
