I have an elderly relative, a WWII vet, who now needs nursing care. He went to a nursing home for rehab after an infection, but has not progressed since then, and has gotten weaker. He is 98 years old, and since this episode has become no longer able to reliably get up and move around (i.e. bathroom or feeding himself). The Nursing Home wants him to leave after Medicare stops paying. Apparently they only pay for a certain number of days.They are saying that they won't take new Medi-Cal patients. The VA says that a vet has to have been disabled before discharge and they won't take him. His assets are nearly gone, and no one can provide a bill for the amount already incurred.
