I have not posted in a while. Recap: Dad has history of falls, just got out of round 2 of extended rehab for trouble walking/general mobility/stroke suspected. He and Mom live in an apartment but I feel they need a cheaper one or go to Assisted Living. They are subsisting on Social Security alone so if AL, it will need to be a Medicaid-funded facility. Mom's health isn't great so part of me says that if she goes first, Dad will end up in a nursing home, so solo apartment is a no-go. I'm an only child (age 50) and my head is swimming. Has anyone used HUD Housing Counselors or any other housing counselors to work through this mess to determine options? Or should I start with the local social services? I've called several senior low-income apartment facilities but the waiting lists are 2-3 years. Thanks for any advice on where to start teasing out this issue.
