Reply to "What about Medicaid?"

Hello Marklaske:

That is a good point! When dad was in the last nursing home for about a month after hip surgery in 2001, I would visit him several times during the day. It was a continual challenge to get him to eat thier meals. What is really interesting is that he is not a picky eater other than he balks at string beans...

So, I know, he would most likely never survive an extended stay in a care facility. While it hasn't been easy care-giving at times, I deeply feel my dad has worked hard all his life and deserves the comfort of his own home during his elderly years. He turned 89 years old in December!

I know, realistically, it is not always possible to care for an elderly loved one in the home... So, I appreciate your take on nursing homes for the elderly. And it makes sense really. Meanwhile, I will be working on maintaining the roof over his head and go as far on the maintenance issues as I can with the monies available. Thank you, Marklaske, for saying that...

Happy New Year from Glenda
