I'm writing this for my mom. She is in very bad shape physically & financially. Unfortunately, we can't help her with finances. She lives only on $660 a month. She has medicare & medicaid - a very tight budget to say the least. She is in great need of handicap aids and neither medicaid nor medicare will pay for them. She managed to save enough money to get the elevated toilet seat, but is using a folding card table chair for the tub. She needs a bathtub chair, handrails, something to help her in & out of the tub, etc. Does anyone know of any organization that would pay or help pay for these items? Both of her knees are in braces, she's had a laminectomy of 5 vertebrae, a fusion in her neck, she uses a walker to get around - she needs more help & I don't know where to turn to get it for her. Any ideas?
