This iReport is part of an assignment:
My mother is 78 years and is in the final stages of colon cancer metastasized. She also suffers from dementia. She is completely bed ridden and weakened to the point she can not even comb her own hair. It requires a hoyer lift with a 2 person assist to get her out of bed and sit up long enough that she does not get pneumonia from lying constantly in bed. Under our current "obamadontcare" criteria she does not qualify for nursing home care and should be able to live home alone with only 17 hours a week assistance. This is totally insane!!
To add even more to it, under her appeal that is now set to be heard by a judge, I have been required to submit a letter from my doctor divulging my medical history explaining why I am not able to care for my mother in my home. This is a violation of MY privacy rights! My health condition should have absolutely nothing to do with my mother being able to receive nursing home care in her final days! And even if I were physically capable of caring for her I am only one person She is 24 hour care and the only assistance "obamadontcare" is offering for her is 17 hours a week for a dying person! Thank you, President Obama!!
He has not only destroyed the security of our elderly to obtain the care they need but he has also stripped their families rights and forced them to do what is humanly impossible!
