Would someone please help? My parents are in Idependent living, but it is the protected environment we have to have. My father cares for my mother- final stage Alzheimer's . Total care. He is somewhat forgetful and cannot cook, drive, handle his financial affairs. We cannot afford assisted care, nor does my dad want it. Besides meals, driving etc. there is always someone watching out for them. A separate home health care co. Is housed in the facility. I hire them for some things while I do all the rest. VA cancelled them as of Feb. 1st. Because the facility has independent in their title. I was told that this is only true of the Milwakee office, not the other 2. Is this true? Does anyone have any suggestions? My husband and I are having to make up the difference while paying for college for 3. I hate to inject common sense, but my dad's ship went down, he survived but can't have the help, meanwhile we ( our government) is giving free cell phones and time for people who have never even had a job. REALLY?
