Hello Andrew. I am very sorry that you and your grandmother are having financial problems. My recommendation is to search for outside help. One idea is to call your local community mental health center and inquire about a case manager. Case managers work with individuals who are in situations similar to yours. The case manager can assist both you and your grandmother. A primary function of case managers is connecting their clients with the appropriate social programs and assisting them in receiving those services.
It is concerning that your grandmother is experiencing severe headaches. Her headaches should be evaluated by a physician. If she has Social Security, then she may also have Medicare which should cover a visit to her doctor. To know what services your grandmother is eligible for, you could contact her primary care physician’s office, the Social Security office or Medicare. A customer service representative should be able to answer your questions.
You may also find it beneficial to call the local health department. A representative from the health department may be able to connect you to community resources that you are unaware of.
The general idea is to see what local community resources you and your grandmother may be eligible for. It is not an easy task but making these inquiries is a worthwhile effort. I hope that you are able to find the proper assistance. Please take care.
