The family of Joe & Bev Willey is asking for financial help to pay nursing home bills not covered by insurance, medicare or medicaid.

In April of 2008 my father Joe had to enter a nursing home. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and my mother Bev could no longer care for him at home. Unfortunately she did not know how, or was not capable, of dealing their financial affairs.

By the time Bev had to enter the same facility in October of 2009 almost $80,000.00 of back bills had accumulated. After qualifying them both for Medicaid in April of 2010 and liquidating all possible assets there is still a current balance due of just over $10,000.00.

On April 3rd Joe passed away. My mother is still in the facility and seems to be doing well. Her dementia comes and goes. She will spend the rest of her life there. It is a wonderful facility and they take great care of her.

I am afraid that if I cannot get at least some of the balance paid they may ask me to move her to another nursing home. There are NO other good facilities in our rural area. If I have to move her it would kill her.

I am asking for financial help to pay down the balance. Any amount would help. I could at least make a good faith payment to keep her in the nursing home.

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.
