My father has parkinsons. I’m looking for financial advice and long term care/ insurance for both my parents. How does anyone afford any of this? I saw www.nhscare.com and am wondering if anyone can recommend them – or not.
I had to leave my job and home in St. Louis, MO to come to Orange, Texas to care for my father who has dimentia and my 89 year old grandmother. There must be a way to join a home health care agency to receive compensation from ther medicare insurance, I just don’t know who to contact.
OK, now that I have your attention I will ask a question about national health insurance in the US. (I am tired of seeing questions like “why do conservatives want to deny poor children health insurance, and for once I decided to respond in kind, to illustrate the absurdity.)
We know from experience in other countries that government control of health care results in rationing to save costs, and the waiting periods and “triage” that goes with it. Many times, procedures are not performed on patients because of their age. Even if one company does this in the US, there’s an ability to “shop” for different insurance providers. If the government ran it, there’s only one game in town.
Shouldn’t we “fix” the health insurance system by REMOVING some of the distortion resulting from existing government regulation, rather than make it worse?
Nost importantly, what’s YOUR solution?
Many good answers. Again, I apologize for the “headline,” but sometimes that’s the only way to get responses.
