My friend is 58 with vascular dementia, she gets 1300.00 from SS disability & 1800.00 from her disability from her work place. Every dime goes to the assisted living home & her co-pays for medicine plus Dr copays. I am her POA & wondering if I should sign her up for Medicare part d. She is on medicare part a & b but the prescription copays are ridiculous. She has gone through all her stocks she had & are selling her house through a short sale. That is all the income she has & both are taxed each month. She also has cigna from work but it doesn't pay hardly anything, medicare either. I am at wit's end on this. My husband & I have forked out our savings to help her cause I know she would for me but we have no more money. I was told by a tax lady that since she is on medicare I can't claim anything myself to get any of our money back. This is so wrong. I buy all her drinks, groceries, clothes & anything else she needs. Please tell me what to do! What kind of attorney do I contact & is it expensive? I just don't have it to dish out.
