The Case of my Lola

6:33 PM Wednesday, March 02, 2011

My lola wants to go back to the Philippines because she's 85 years old already and wants to escape the harsh winters of Michigan. Unfortunately, her pension was awarded her because she's a senior citizen. It's not something she worked for in her youth that she can bring and use anywhere, like other American citizens.

Therein lies her problem. Right now, we're looking into resources for seniors to see a workaround on this issue... so she can still come home with medicare supplement to enjoy. After all, she's undergone surgery for her hips and is already taking maintenance drugs for her heart.

I don't think there's a need for burial insurance for her though... that's something all her kids and grandkids can spring for... plus, my father's plots are there for her to use. Not that I'm expecting her to pass away anytime soon. Her mother reached the grand old age of 96, her uncle, 102. :)

Anyway, I just hope she can come home soon... and maybe, my youngest paternal uncle will also grab his chance to get married. Haha.
