Elderly Parents Financial Needs
Unfortunately, though, for 40 of those years, they have had crippling medical bills and expenses due to multiple surgeries, medical conditions, and prescriptions. Between them, there have been at least 30 surgeries, with two major ones as recent as this past April and May. The latest 3 prescriptions filled this week cost our father $1,000 out of pocket at our local pharmacy. They are both in their 80's and are truly struggling to meet expenses. Our father worked for a chemical plant for many years, fought in Korea, and along with our mother raised four children. They are good neighbors, faithful friends, and put their Christian faith into practice on a daily basis. Our mother will be released from the nursing home (due to finances) on August 7th to begin receiving care at home via Medicare. She will require much care for which financing is not yet available. Our father is currently struggling with the red tape required by the VA to get the benefits for which he is due but not yet receiving. Selling their belongings, reversing their mortgage, has not produced enough money to meet the costs they are experiencing.
We are reaching a point, as their children, of not knowing what else to do. We are, withut a doubt, helping in every way we possibly can but at this point it is just not enough.
We pray that this meets you well and is in no way leaving a burden. We are afraid of what we woud miss if we were to never ask.
Thank you on behalf of our entire family for your consideration.
