I did hear from the agency I wrote about in my last blog. They do have the number of spaces required by law but recognize they need more, and perhaps should have some reserved for visitors. They are going to "look into it".
I did find out some other things in my email. Now all we have to do is follow. I've put this into my husband's court.
In the meantime, I don't know if we will be able to arrange a good time for both us and them, so we can perhaps come down and have a meeting with Bil's medicaid service coordinator, to find out the truth about his situation, and how budget cuts will affect him.
Meanwhile, my mother in law is faced with continuing to care for Bil as she gets more and more frail. Right now she still wants him there, to help him. But can Bil truly be a caretaker, as she almost seems to expect from him in a way? I will try to blog about that next time.
