My grandfather is in a rehab facility following a hospital stay but is going to be released in a few weeks. He had a caretaker coming in three times a week and when she walked in, she found him on the ground and no one knows how long he was lying there following a stroke. He lives in WA and I am on the other side of the country. He needs at least daily visits but we think for his own safety that he should be in an assisted living facility. The problem is that he has already drained his assets but he makes too much from his social security income to qualify for Medicaid. Even the increase in caretaking costs to have someone come in daily would be more than we can afford as a family. None of us have much disposable income and we can't put a dent in the cost of daily caretaking, let alone the cost of the assisted living facility or a nursing home. We are concerned about his safety but also, no one is in a position where we can take him in. I'm out of my element and really need help navigating these waters. What happens if he needs care but can't afford it? Is there a way to forfeit his income so he can qualify for Medicaid? What options does he have?
