There are also some health related retirement homes that can be of assistance. Usually the home knows how to work with medicare/medicaid to get the applicant in. These are not nursing homes. Sometimes they are church related.
I've been trying to figure out public housing, but it's hard, because it's not something I'm familiar with, and she lives a state away, 8+hour drive away. The state she's in has a lower cost of living than mine. So, does she live in my brother-in-law's state, or our state? It's overwhelming thinking about all the possiblities. I don't even know where to start.

Treatment of mental and neurological conditions is evolving rapidly, so the physicians she sees regularly may not be aware of all options.
I don't know who she saw at the various mental hospitals she was at. My brother-in-law tried calling and talking to her doctors a lot, and they won't give him ANY information. I don't think I'd have any luck contacting her doctors, as I'm not a blood relative, and it's really hard trying to get my husband to remember to call. He works nights, so by the time he comes home, he's ready to pass out.
I know she's seen counselors and phycologist. Can a neurologist do anything for Dissociative Identity Disorder? The identities are REAL, just as real as your identity is or mine...
