My grandmother and her husband are both in an assisted living home. They need to be. Their age and medical needs require it. My dad called earlier today because the facility is talking about evicting them because they haven’t been paid since my grandmother and her husband entered their care. There are allegedly 11 other residents in this facility in a similar situation. Either someone pays up, or they need to go.
I don’t fault the facility for wanting their money, why should they do it for free?? They are a business, not a charity. My dad has very patiently tried to work through the system (including using a lawyer) to make sure that Medicare would cover the expenses their care requires. But in day 110+ of a 45 day approval, he’s being met with nothing more that the run around of “It’s not my job” and “it’s in process”.
Yeah, I’m thrilled to death about government run healthcare.
