Update: 8/14- It's been 2.5 weeks since I took my homeless aunt in. Things are going ok, but I have some concerns & I'm not sure what to do. First off, she has a form of Adult Mecicaid with very limited coverage, no vision, dental, or mental health services. I'm no Doctor, but I think she has Mental Health issues. She claims that God talks to her & tells her everything I'm thinking, & tells her everything she needs to do. She went years without Food Stamps & Indentification because God told her she didn't need those things. She will start a conversation with me, then will say "shhh, God is talking to me". Now, we do believe in God, & I grew up in a Christain household, but I think her behavior is a bit odd. Also, she says a lot of things that are not true. I had another aunt that had a breast biopsy(small nodule removed) due to suspected Cancer, all results were negative. However, this aunt tried telling me that breast cancer runs in the family & aunt D had her whole breast cut off because she had cancer. I talk to aunt D everyday, so I know this is untrue. She also claims to have 3 biracial grand kids that live in California, I spoke to her son, & this is not true. He only has 2 children & has never visited California. When I was talking to her about a senior living apartment that my uncle lives in, she told me that building was for women with hip replacements, again not true. She can't get SSI till 65, unless she has a disability, I'm thinking she has a undianosed mental illness, not sure how to go about getting her help since her medical insurance doesn't cover mental health. I also don't know how much longer I can tolerate her lies or delussional thoughts. Other than that, she cleans my home, keeps herself clean, & interacts good with the kids. My 64yr old Aunt called me today, told me that she has stayed her limit at all Shelters & needs a place to stay until she can get on SSI at age 65(July 2014). She has been living in Shelters for over 4yrs. She basically spent her life caring for her sick children, her DD died, husband left her homeless. Long story short, we are the only ones willing to help her. I have family that are in a better financial position than us, but they are selfish. We have 5 kids, live on one income & honestly don't know how we will care for another person, but its only the right thing to do. We are picking her up tomorrow & I need ideas or resources for help. She told me she has a medical card & gets food stamps. Will she still get them if she moves in with us? I have a partially finished room in the basement, but no bed or TV down there. I already use coupons, time showers, shop sales only. Any other ideas to stretch funds? Is there anywhere that will donate a bed or offer any kind of help? Thanks!
