  • Ask your hospital or other health care provider if any financial aid is available

  1. I think it would be really hard if you had to file for bankruptcy and didn't have any income. I wonder if the senior care homes have a really low cost to stay there or if you can do a payment plan that the family pays for. I just wouldn't like to see the elderly on the streets because they are unable to work and they can't afford somewhere to live.
