My ex-husband's father (78) needs a place to live in Orange County, CA. My ex-husband was in the mortgage industry and cannot find significant-enough work to make house payments. It's been a year since his last payment. He'll be losing the home soon and is unable to afford other living conditions for himself let alone for his father or for our two children (who will live with me). What do you do in a situation like this? Where does an elderly person living on social security live when their children can no longer support them?

Contact your states Alliance for Aging they may have information that will get you on the right road. There is usually along wait for low income housing- and when a apartment or facility opens up, they will need to be in the line and in person to fill out the application. Is he able or willing to pysically relocate to another state that may provide better services for Medicaid and his SSI benefits? Due to the currrent economy, there are many people who are opening their houses to paying boarders. Check out advertisments at your local grocery store or go on line to Craigs list.

There are government programs throughout the US that provide apartments based on income. Low income housing for seniors is usually pretty nice and will cost about 30% of the SS check. Check out HUD housing for Seniors.

If CA does not have options maybe it is time for your x-husband and father to move to the Sunny South. SC is a hot market, growing economy (even though we have high unemployement we have high number of low trained people).

You have not said how much he has to live on and of course what his health is.. Does he need nursing care? Can he live in an assisted living facility? Does he have LTC insurance or any thing besides SS income? It is not easy ....HUG

Check out " Senior Living" or Retirement Residential Living. His S. S. check on the fourth Wednesday of every month should cover this monthly expense.
