Elder Care and Hospice Care

by Margaret Aranda, MD

The subject of eligibility for permanent disability, Medi-Cal, Medi-Care, and Hospice Care has been brought to my attention more often lately, so I thought I'd provide you with some resources. I'm giving you to Nursing Home Solutions, with Zoran K. Basich, Esq. as the Founder of Gray Law also. Committed to helping the elderly.

(And no, I'm not telling you that you need to go to a Nursing home. But you may have a loved one that is already there, or (s)he may be in danger of losing his/her house, retirement, or bank account assets.) So here it is, with other resources as well. I'll be picking different subjects as they come up to me, so be prepared for a little more variety with topics that may not be directly related to dysautonomia, but may still be worthwhile and important for some people who desperately need this information.

And since I'm trained as an anesthesiologist, I'll do a separate post on Hospice care, because I think the nation can do a better job at standardizing Hospice care (e.g., wet mouth swabs for dry mouth or lips). If it helps even one person, it is worth it. Thank you!
