No Funding for In Home Caregivers

by Anonymous

After all is said and done, if you are supporting an elder (who cannot be left alone for safety reasons) you are stuck. Each state has their own 'fund' in the social services department.


IF your elder receives gross of $1,600.00 per month before medicare deductions and YOU as caregiver have NO income due to the nature of your new place in life (even if you are an educated healthy person who has exhausted early 401k outpouring due to circumstances at hand) you are ineligible for respite.

Hospice is only when a doctor determines terminal eligibility. (And yes, hospice-related medicare funds do time out!)

We have been on the wait list for over seven years. Mom cannot feel her hands, can barely get up and down to toilet, and is 92. Cancers, heart disease, spinal stenosis and nerve and muscle atrophy. We still manage to stay afloat and PAY CO-PAYS AND MEDICATIONS.

Please be careful who you vote for in the next election. Everyone popping out babies 1) out of wedlock and 2) with numerous fathers and 3) receiving all that FREE training paid for by us taxpayers take up whatever 'jobs' are available BECAUSE THEY GET PREFERENCE.

When pro-creation fails to have free taxpayers $$$ attached to it as a benefit, maybe the leaching will stop. Families with kids truly in need do not receive services because party-girls are producing an uneducated, sickly population that will only serve the socialist agenda.

Veterans, the aged (from the builder generation) and working-class blue collar families are bearing the brunt of being ill-assisted to cope with the changing America.

Humans have cared for their aging for centuries. Only now are we compounded with the punishment of funding the entire nation, while ill-equipped to handle our own household.

We need to learn to do more with less. That's all the advice I have for all of us here.
