I have been to Dumaguete several times and may retire there in a dozen years. Right now I am trying to see if I can convince my brother (53 Yrs old) to go ahead and retire there. He got in a motorcycle accident about 7 years ago and can walk but has a paralyzed bladder. Which means he has to use a catheter. I have some questions and appreciate any help/guidance. He has no social life here, so going there he should get a few friends and some help (maybe a little help from my wife's relatives). Maybe we can pay a few relatives to take care of him. He has a social security Disability income and another disability income from a company. I think he will be okay financially. What about medical care? I know important stuff can be done in Cebu. A therapist maybe helpful in his care. What about renting an apartment or house with A/C, internet and maybe Cable TV? How much? If we have people live with him might need a few rooms. Since his back is bad getting around on a trike maybe bad. any other options? My hope is he finds a nice/responsible/honest older lady who will take care of him. I would worry if he found a teenager or youngster to marry. What about becoming a permanent resident? Possible? What about his Medicaid? Can he get care paid for by American Medicaid until Medicare takes over? Will medicare work there? What about getting back and forth? Any of you folks found out to fly with bad back problems? Sorry for the multitude of questions and thanks in advance.
