  1. Darlene Jones-Lundergan for Michael Lundergan says:

    How do I get help for my disabled, chronically ill (on life support), deaf, and blind adult son. We live in the State of AZ under the Medicaid program with private insurance. We are constantly threatened by the State’s providers that they will take our son away from his home if we do not cover their in home shifts of care. We already do 60 hours or more per week. Our son requires nursing care around the clock. We are so burnt out on dealing with the State and constantly being threatened. Please help me, Mom/Darlene

      Hello Mrs. Jones-Lundergan – Thank you for visiting our blog! Since we’re librarians, we don’t have experience in navigating Medicaid or other benefit programs. We can recommend resources to contact or tap in to in AZ and nationally which may be able to assist you: In terms of benefit programs and financial assistance, the best place to start is benefits.gov. The anonymous questionnaire on that site will direct you to state and local programs your family may qualify for. To find professional and personal assistance in your area, we recommend contacting an independent living center. They work with people with disabilities and their families to help them live as independently as possible in their community. Here is a directory of ILCs in the state of Arizona: http://www.ilru.org/html/publications/directory/arizona.html They can tell you more about other care programs, respite care, and additional options for your family. A third resource you might tap into for information and referral is 2-1-1. It works like 4-1-1 but you get an actual person who will do an intake interview and then refer you to services and supports in your community. Good luck to you and your family.
