I would guess that you might not ever have been in a Medicaid only nursing home...i.e., a nursing home that accepts Medicaid in full payment for the stay. They frequently aren't the nicest places to be, or for family to visit.

My mother initially went to a Medicaid-paid nursing home, which she thought was great since it was free for her, and she was a tight-wad.

In less than a week, she called me EVERY DAY to beg me to get her out of there. Being deeply in Alzheimer's, she didn't remember our phone number, but she read it off the label we'd put on her walker, and she figured out that since the last name was the same as hers that the phone # probably belonged to someone in the family. Now *that's* dedication!
