My 93 year old mother who had Alzheimers ran out of money and we had to sign up for Medical. Thank goodness for that support. Without it I don't know what we would have done.

Hospice Services

I don't think any of us could have survived my mother's death without the wonderful services of Hospice, which were paid for my Medicare. It made my mother's last months so much easier and more comfortable and probably saved my life along with it. Caregiving ...

My mother was on an HMO the last couple of years and will now be placed back on Medicare and Medicaid as the HMO was a disaster.

I'm sure medicaid coverage will definitely help her in medical assistance, home health care, etc.
