Hello: My grandmother was living alone for quite sometime and fell and broke her hip back in December. She has COPD, Emphysema, Congestive Heart Failure, Diabetes, Kidney Problems and a few others. I decided it wasn't safe for her to live alone. I found a board and care home here is California who offered to care for her for less than the amount of what they normally would charge. She gets around $1770 (disability and pension from my grandfather who was Vet/Retired). I am left paying for anything else that she needs (prescriptions, clothing, personal items, etc. We filed the AA paperwork in early January. I have called each week and checked status. As of June 6, they are at "Decision Stage". Problem is - is that she has been out of the board and care since May 09, 2013. She ended up with a "superbug" infection and was in hospital for 10 days then to a rehab center and was moved back to the hospital and has been there 2.5 weeks with pneoumonia. Doctor offered hospice but, can't do that as the board and care can only support if the person has a single room and she has shared room. They don't even have any single rooms. I am at a loss of what to do to see if VA can rush anything. I don't see her getting better and the care home can only provide a certain amount of assistance as they are not a nursing home. Are there any suggestions that anyone can provide?
