  •  My Gramma in Texas (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    When my gramma was alive, she wasn't able to get Medicaid in Texas, because she made to much money.  She was living on SS and an extremely tiny retirement.  I'd guess she was living on roughly 800/month.  

    She ended up dying in a hospice as a result of lung cancer which went untreated for a long time.  She thought she was just under the weather, but that wasn't the case.  

    She was on medicare, but in small town TX, it's hard for a senior to get to the doctor, because there are no taxi services, and there aren't any civic institutions that support driving seniors around, and nobody from her church bothered to check on her.
