A friend of mine has a roommate who is 72 yrs old, with severe COPD & heart failure. She cannot continue in her current living arrangement as my friend works full time and cannot be home with her. Her oxygen levels get pretty low with resulting confusion on her part due to lack of oxygen. She was in rehab for 20 days, came home & was back in the ER within hours. This was in August. Since then it has been a seemingly endless cycle of ER, hospital bed & then rehab. She has minimal insurance (medicare) and gets little in social security monthly. Her actual family is out of state and quite frankly, not all that interested in her welfare. All of this sits squarely on my friend's shoulders but she has neither POA or medical POA and the patient is not always cognizant of what is going on around her. She has been bounced around to different facilities that seem almost indifferent to her fate. Any suggestions?
