Our family is in desperate need of financial help. Our dad has been in an assisted living facility for the last year. He has had 4 cancers to include breast cancer with a mastectomy, diabetic, and is on dialysis daily. He is a Vietnam Veteran, a father, grandfather, and an amazing human being. When we started this process over a year ago with the VA Dept. We were assured if we paid the rent each month of $3,000 for his full time care center that we would be reimbursed fully and the VA would back pay the rent. After battling through so much red tape, social workers, hospitals, case workers we are at our financial breaking point. The VA started paying 600.00 a month and did not honor the back pay on the full amount they said they would, case closed and now we’ve requested an audit which could take even longer. Our family is out 30,000+ in savings, we’ve been working OT. Time away from our children, countless hours of extra time to support him with his needs and with the cost of everything we are providing to him, we are all living paycheck to paycheck. We have gone broke try to take care of our dads needs before our own. His rent for May has not been paid. The facility is processing eviction notice. He will end up on the street. He needs dialysis daily and without this care he will DIE. Conversations are going on regarding hospice. He is physically sick. But mentally he is healthy.
How do we not have any options to provide him other than him being a homeless vet with no more healthcare?
No nursing home will take him because of his dialysis.
We are humble in our ask that someone has it in their hearts to help us to continue to keep him housed until we can get through the red tape of the government.
We have nothing else to give. And allowing him to die homeless is not an option. I know there are kind, generous, caring people out there that can help us. Lord knows we need it. If you can’t help with monetary donations. Prayers work too. Please help us.
Thank you from our family to yours.
