Hello everyone. My grandmother has been in a skilled nursing/assisted living facility for about 11 years. My mother is retired and tends to her every day (sometimes twice a day). She's there so much she started volunteering to plan and run activities for the residents. My mother is a retired school teacher, she can't help herself! Anyways, after spending so much time in a LTC facility, she bought a LTC policy that pays for in home nursing care. I am a pre-nursing student now and I was wondering if anyone knows if these plans will pay me to take care of my mother. I know that no matter how good a facility or HHN may be, NO ONE will take care of my mother like I will. However, I am not independently wealthy and can not afford to have no income if I needed to take care of my mother. No, I am not becoming a nurse just for this reason and, honestly, at this point my strongest desire is pediatric nursing, but my mom is my :redbeathe. I would do just about anything for her. Has anyone done this? If it's even possible, is it a bad idea emotionally? Thanks in advance!
