My husband is in a nursing home.  And , It is very expensive and the government takes too much money from us for his care.  I am scared that I will be homeless. And I am aware that I must stay strong, healthy and positive  for  my husband all that I do for him, and our pets.  He is in another  county/or Providence. So I have to ask for rides every week to bring food and books and other stuff.  And, Answer his questions. While I keep getting notification that the Government wants more money. Or that his medicine has been dropped etc.   It is all so scary. And, I hate living alone.  And fearful that I can not pay the rent........    Now if this should be deleted go ahead. I understand.

    Would it be easier if you could hire someone to look after him in your home?  My 90 year old mom just passed away last Sunday & she never wanted to go into a nursing home so I arranged care for her in her own condo.  She loved the comfort of her own place until the day she died.

    No...Its a long story.  But, Medi-Cal would still be called in because he requires round the clock care. And , I am handicapped.  I am afraid .."It is what it is."   I have never found a way out of all of this I have even talked to a lawyer for help.
