The discharge folks at rehab could have been more helpful in explaining your options, it seems.

Glad is right, call the Area Agency on Aging on Monday to get the ball rolling.

In general, the patient's funds should be used for care. If the patient is impoverished, Medicaid or Medicaid waivers should be sought.

Did the doctor indicate that she needed round the clock care?

My mom was hospitalized in may of this year for CHF related issues. She was in hospital for a week and then transitioned to a rehab/snf facility for 2 weeks. When it was time to discharge her from rehab the M.D. Said she could go home but needed to have home care. None of us were equipped to accommodate that. So we quickly found a nice ALF and moved her in with us funding it all. Sound like we make a mistake at discharge time??

If you are Thinking nursing home, first you need a doctor's prescription. Call the Area Agency on Aging for help to figure out what can be done.

You paid for her assisted living? Why? Finances should have been figured out before the first move. How long has she been where she is? Maybe they can help find the solution.

I'd check to see how long it takes. Who has given you info so far? I think there are laws about how many days to get your application reviewed. In my state, I think the website said they have about 5 days to give you an answer. Plus, if she is disabled, I'd see if that makes a difference.

I hope you get some more responses. Usually, there are a lot of posters who know more about this than me.

Thank you....she is in a regular ALF...unfortunately lack of funds is driving the decision to try and move her to another faculty. We are on the list to apply for ALF Medicaid funds but our money will be gone before a decision on that will be made

Is this a regular ALF or Memory Care? My LO is in Memory Care and we were told that she can stay there for the rest of her days. I have seen other residents remain there on Hospice too. I have observed special care providers, I suppose Hospice, who are feeding and caring for these residents, in addition to the MC staff. In my state, ALF and MC's are covered by a state sponsored plan. I would assume that you have to apply for Medicaid nursing home care, if you decide to go that route. I bet you get some answers on that here. Also, the ALF should have information on hand.

My mom is an ALF and doing ok, however she has multiple issues(mobility,CHF ,diabetes, mild dementia). My siblings and I are paying for the ALF but funds will be depleted in next 3-4 months.
How do we know when/if she will qualify for "Long-term care home"( where Medicaid covers most of the expenses). What is the process to transition from ALF to long-term care home? Thanks in advance.
