Medicare doesn’t pay all of the bills for her care. She is at home and my family pays for someone to come and help care for her in the mornings so my dad can continue to run his business to support her care and supplies. She was on hospice until she had the ventilator put in, because it is a life sustaining treatment she cannot remain on hospice. Hospice provided most of her medical supplies before the ventilator. Now a good percentage of her medical care despite having Medicare and supplemental insurance falls on the family. Oddly enough if we were to place Mom in a nursing home it would mostly be covered. Which we will never do. There is so much insurance doesn’t cover.
Awareness and donations to support those coping with this horrific disease are the only way to a cure. Whether or not you choose to donate to a cause or not is entirely up to you, but I do hope this makes you more aware at the very least and will support our fight to save our loved ones in your hearts.
