  •  I make a bit more than Rose as a caregiver (5+ / 0-)

    but I live in L.A. where their are many well-heeled sorts.  I have taken minimum wage in special cases such as end-of-life care for sweet souls who just couldn't afford to pay more or to help friends of friends. Nobody is in this line of work to get rich.
    If Medicaid funds were refused here, it would be many of the patients I have/have had who couldn't afford adequate assistance. It's a horrifying thought since they get barely what they need in some cases, as it is.
    At 67, why is Rose not on Medicare herself? You say she has no insurance. When I hit 65 I'll have some, even if won't be enough and I'll probably be Medi-Medi, too.
