    It's finally going! I met with the Social Worker and nurse on Monday. MIL's niece was there, too (somehow she has inserted her into the process) MIL was having such a good day that the nurse warned us at one point that she was not showing the need for care and was close to being denied! Stressful. Finally they asked some questions about math (which she can't comprehend anymore) and her dementia started to appear from then on. I hated her embarrassment, but we need to have this assistance.

    I was trying to explain to her neighbor that we can't afford to pay his 12 year old nephew $40/week for lawn mowing. We pay the caregiver nearly $1000/month. His response :" the caregiver better learn to mow lawn!". What a jerk. He was the one that shamed us that there wasn't someone there taking care of her. Now he is complaining that her lawn isn't kept as nicely as he wants. Ugh! So, I'm failing at everything ~ once again.

    btw - lesson learned. (in Michigan) If you hire a family member/friend to be a caregiver and claim the expense on the application, you must have a caregiver agreement in place before they begin working! ot

    April is done. The application is in, but they need more information. We are averaging about $250/month to mom to help her with her expenses. It is getting really frustrating.

You can type any date in plain English like in 3 weeks or next month.
You can also type in recurring due date like every day, every week and every month.
