As my parents get older, these stories bother me more. Reading the story above, I know that dealing with those with dementia and Alzheimer’s is extremely difficult, but it would be a last resort for me to do that. In reading this article, even the Office of the State Advocate in Wisconsin found after an 18 month investigation, that the nursing home mislead the family in telling them that their mother could stay when she ran out of money and when she qualified for Medicaid. It will be interesting to see if the nursing home settles this one or takes it to trial.
