Carol, Medicare does not cover much in home care or longterm for that matter. See if your hospital does not offer in home care, many do or at least will set you up with someone. That is why I got plan J when it was available and refuse to drop it. It covers short term and long term care. Bankers Life & Casualty (who has my advantage plan) does offer some back up plans that may help you and hubby, tell him HI for me and to get better soon or I will haunt him.
So my world, ooooh what fun. Physically things are going somewhere. Yesterday I was sitting on the love seat (that was probably the problem) forgottten what it is for, and I had an earthquake no one else felt. My hole body just started shakingand trembling, good thing i use super glue nothing fell off, but things inside got all messed up. I tried to sleep for awhile and did and didn't, then last night I felt like I was going to faint and fall off the couch. Today my lower half is in turmoil and my brain is trying to clear up but that is gettting harder by the day.
I have been in contact with Alzheimer's Foundation of America which is a caregivers site. I will be as of now on a conference call on Thurday, 8/8/2013 at 1pm EST with them to tell my story and to answer questions, wife will be with me to keep me on target. Let you know more later.
For now be good to yourselves.
God Bless & Keep You & This Country of Ours1
