My cousin was shot and his spine has been severed in 2 places. He has been told he will never walk again. This happened about 4 months ago and his health has been very poor, constantly has infections,in and out of hospital,etc. My mother is caring for him and we are shocked at how difficult it has been to get disability-social security and medicaid. He is 28 yrs. old and his disability is only $500/month. His medicaid only covers close to 1/2 of his meds. and supplies.He is getting no home health care and my mother is having difficulty caring for him, transporting him to therapy, etc. and working at her job. She cannot afford his meds. and supplies on her own. Are there ANY services in Mississippi or otherwise that provide any financial asistance to adults who have been injured in this way. We are so surprised at the limitations of help for him. There has to be other alternatives than nursing homes?!!! Please respond ANYONE who has info. Thanks!!!!
