Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Brad writes: I just read the article about the situation with your mom and was wondering whether you could just bring her home? Is she required to remain “locked down”?
My reply: My understanding is that every state-sanctioned “care” facility – which of course is all of them, since it is illegal to care for the elderly without government sanction – demand and require the same state-decreed Sickness Kabuki, so there is no point in moving her from one facility to another and, regardless, she is only allowed to be moved to a state-sanctioned facility.
This means that while in theory my home is an option it really isn’t because it is not “approved” and not feasible to get it “approved” due to various “hazards” that cannot be ameliorated without basically remodeling the house at tremendous cost, which I cannot afford to do.
Then there is the issue of care. I am not “qualified” – and to be fair, probably could not do this job regardless because it would be a full-time and 24-hour job that would probably make it impossible for me to do my job, which would then leave me broke… and unable to care for myself as well.
It’s an impossible situation. Like so many others, I never imagined things would get this crazy -this soon. But they have – and now what to do?
I wish I knew.
