Medi-Cal and Medicare
I have some questions and don't know exactly where to turn so I thought I would come here and hopefully get some advice from the doper community. My Dad is in the hospital on life support. They don't know if he is going to make it, but they say if he does recover that he will need to go to a facility that can take care of him. He has an HMO through Kaiser. He has no Medicare and no Medi-Cal. His pension is only about $1500 a month and that is used to take care of him and his wife, who also works two jobs to help support the both of them.
My question is, what options in the state of California does he have? He's an amputee patient and has had one stroke before (we don't know if this is a second one), and has had a very difficult time taking care of himself and will definitely need help if he recovers. I don't have much other family or money and I'm sure his wife will not be able to take care of him the way he needs to be taken care of.
If anyone has any advice or suggestions or has been through a similar experience and could share, I would be ever so grateful. Thank you.
