Too much money to qualify for Medicaid, not enough money to qualify without it.
Looking, searching for a facility, a place to live until you die.
The fancy place says no. You can’t prove your monetary worth, can’t prove you will give them a check every month… until… eternity.
The modest place says no. You will cost them too much. You have too many needs. And you can’t prove you will give them a check every month…
Until you have no more money to give and the Government
So you wait. Without a home to go to. Without a place to live. Moving between rooms and buildings, between facilities and hospitals.
Until you are broke
Or you die
Whichever comes first.
