Help Mother pay for long term nursing care.

Aloha.  Three months ago my Mother, Eleanor A. De Jesus was paralyzed on the right side of her body due to a Stroke.  She also has Dementia which is getting worse. After 3 weeks in the hospital, she was transferred to Life Care Center of Kona for speech  and physical therapy. Four weeks ago she was down graded to long term nursing care because her Medicare was discontinued and now needs Medicaid to cover her long-term nursing care. She needs 24/7 certified nursing care and we can't provide that for her at home. We have been paying out of pocket for the last 4 weeks so she can have 24/7 nursing care at Life Care of Kona which we have been paying $3,225.11 out of pocket per week. Our funds are running out and we need more time to get her approved for Medicaid/Medqest long-term nursing care. 
We are currently working on trying to get her Medicaid/Medqest approved so they can help pay for her long-term nursing care. We are buy time to get her Medicaid approved and we don't know how long this process is going to take so we are kindly asking for your help to continue her long term care till she gets approved. We will greatly and sincerely appreciate any amount you can donate. Mahalo nui loa.
The De Jesus/Bautista Family.
