For instance my father was in the USAF for 26 years and still to this day does not have his full benefits.. I have repeatedly ask for her to let me know what is the progress and she tells us nothing. She is about to resign after all my parents money is gone. Please help

But at one time my sister was and had my parents in her home and because of that one sister who dd not agree it has come to this. Mind you she does not llive and has not lived near my parents ever.

Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.

Your first stop is the Ombudsman.File a complaint that there is a need for change here, they can help get TDADS involved here.TDADS as a guardiaship of last resort program, they have lawyers and support staff that serve as guardians.

This ombudsman is a state employee paid to advocate for your parents and other residents.Call here..

Call 1-***-***-**** to speak with an LTC Ombudsman in your area.

You have right to complain and seek a new guardian and help for them through ombudsman and TDADS as well.

Sir, At this time I do not have the money. I grieve for my mom and dad every day. Both have alizhimers and this is just a not right. I even called the JAG at Randolph AFB and they could not help me because I am not there guardian. Twenty six years of serving our country and this happens. My father was the Sgt Major for the hospitals. If I had the money I would pay you but I do not. With Gods grace just maybe I will get some money. I understand if this is not ok with you.
Blessing to you and yours
