Hi from Texas.
Does your Dad own his own home? If so they would expect him to sell it to give the money to the nursing home.
Also your MOM should be getting SS.
If so then they usually take all but $50.00.
Meds should be covered by medicare/medicaid.
Does he or she have a social worjer? If not call human services or even a lawyer if you muct to get all of this fixed. No was should he be paying that. I hope somone else also answers this. I can only go by what they did with my MIL. She didn't own anything, but my SIL surely was capable of paying the nursing home bill. But she didn't have to pay a dime for care or meds. Please look into this as soon as possible. I wouldn't go too much by the hospital social worker if you have seen her already and this is the result. If not then give her a try.
Jope this is a lead in the right direction and please let me know.
