So, this is how our elderly are to be treated? If they have no money, they deserve the streets. Shame on them. Remember that when you are in her shoes, because you will be.
Umm just wait it's going to get worse wait until people are being kicked out of nursing homes because there is no more Medicare coverage to cover those days
She is not being kicked out of a nursing home, and has a offer to move to one. Her family wants her to stay in a private facility that charges that much. This has nothing to do with the government, who you voted for just that the family made a very expensive choice not knowing how long she would live.
Is the facility supposed to care for her for free? Staffing costs money, utilities cost money. Her family should take her home if they can't afford it
Shameful. We need to take care of the elderly not boot them out because of $$$. Praying for her and her family.
I had an elderly friend who lived in assisted living and unfortunately like any place you rent, if you dont' pay, you get evicted. She didnt' get evicted however her funds ran out and she moved in with her family. If gofundme gets that much money for her, what about next year? Not trying to reflect negativity, only asking obvious questions.
So she'll have to go to a nursing home that accepts her insurance or to live with her children. Unfortunately that's the business of healthcare. But I think people miss the point of it being a business that has to pay its employees. It can seem incredibly heartless but it's the same thing as walking into a grocery store with no money and expecting to get the food for free because you need it. Her children could probably do a little bit more research into an assisted living home that accepts Medicaid. This is not a punishing act.
She is fortunate to have been able to afford an assisted living facility at all. Most can't and either try to make it on their own with some help from home health services provided by medicare, move in with their child or go to a nursing home from the start.
I think she has lived a full life they should have the respect for people over 100 to allow them to live their time on earth where the choose and lower the price ... geez money hungry greedy people... GOD BLESS HER AND HER FAMILY .Shame on corporate America these elders are what made America America
OMG people who say live with kids, she is 108 so her children are not young either. Yes she can go to a nursing home but jeez have you been to one? They charge at least 10,000 a month for horrible care and no real activities. This woman has been in assisted living for 3 years and is doing well. I wish I could live on my own until 105. The fact is they planned and paid for 3 years and now are looking for help. We do not prioritize elderly in our country. It is truly sad.
