A) I’m sorry to hear that you’re having trouble qualifying for in-home care. I understand that it can be frustrating and discouraging to be denied the help you need.
There are a few reasons why you might not qualify for in-home care, even if you have COPD and heart problems. One possibility is that your health problems are not severe enough to meet the eligibility requirements for in-home care. Another possibility is that your income is too high to qualify for in-home care.
If you’re not sure why you don’t qualify for in-home care, you should talk to your Medicaid caseworker. They should be able to explain the eligibility requirements and tell you if there’s anything you can do to qualify for in-home care.
In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to help yourself. First, make sure you’re taking care of yourself. Get enough rest, eat a healthy diet, and exercise regularly. This will help you stay as healthy as possible and make it easier for you to take care of yourself.
Second, ask for help from your friends and family. If you have friends or family members who are willing to help you clean your apartment, take them up on their offer. This will free up some of your time so you can focus on taking care of yourself.
Finally, there are a number of resources available to help you stay independent. Your local Area Agency on Aging can provide you with information about home care services, transportation services, and other resources that can help you stay in your home.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
