I am about to place my mother in assisted living. It is all private pay. Her social security and VA benefits will pay for two thirds of it. Her savings will pay for the rest but will be completely depleted in about two years. At this point she will be broke with no place to go. We have no idea how we are going to care for her or where she will go. I would bring her home with us now but we have no way to care for her here. She needs 24 hour assistance. Even if we have someone come in for the twelve hours that we are gone for work the lowest rate you can hire someone is about ten dollars an hour. Even if we only have them come on weekdays that is twenty four hundred dollars a month. Who has this kind of money? Insurance does not cover any of it. Has anyone else had to deal with how to take care of their parents when the money is gone? I am so terrified and overhwhelmed. I am sitting her balling my eyes out and the Boxers are so confused. They are trying to comfort me but they do not understand what is going on.
