My mom is 90 and broke her pelvis. She is on Medicaid, but I am told long term care is $300 per day. She is not a candidate for home hospice due to the amount of care involved and I am already at my wits end. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Sounds like she needs a nursing home and many of them accept medicaid. Do a search, ask your local Agency for Aging,

Hold on, if she is on medicaid then she should be able to be in a facility that accepts medicaid payment. Who is telling you she has to self pay?

I'm very sorry to hear this. Poor mother, very painful. Where is she at the moment?

As I understand it, the key criterion for deciding whether a person needs hospice care is a life expectancy of no more than six months. Other than that, the distinction between hospice and palliative care is a pretty fine one.

Are you receiving any help with developing a care plan?
