Have you reach your zombie phase yet?
After a nightmare week I finally gave up trying to get a handle on my parents finances and Medicaid to get my mother into the Nursing home. I said to hell with it. Get her in and deal with the finances later.
There were endless calls to this nursing home over the past few weeks and too many people giving contradictory information. I was told by many people that there would be no problem. That her SS was all that was needed. That we’d have to pay the first month ($6800) then Medicaid would handle it. That there would have to be a spend down of finances. But when the time came and her clothes were packed and ready they refused her admission. They “own too much property.” An issue that had never once been mentioned in our calls.
The thought that this could go on for 3 to 10 more years has left me wandering the house like a zombie. Just numb to everything. I went from a few hours of feeling alive again to feeling nothing.
