I am on Medicaid, she is on Medicaid and Medicare. My ex husband who lives here is on Medicare and Medicaid. We have in home caregivers, social security disability, social security retirement and social security supplemental income. I am a retired social service provider and resource person for disabled folks. I can ASSURE you Medicare NOR Medicaid has any help at all for sound barriers! There are NO government agencies and NO funds, nor do I think using tax payers hard earned money to pay for such things makes any sense. We do NOT OWN the house so we cannot alter it and it means we do not qualify for Habitat for Humainty or any other low income homeowner's help. I know about the cloth tiles (too costly) and acoustical ceiling tiles (landlord doesn't want something so clearly not wall.) I've seen systems that are false walls but WAY WAY WAY too expensive. Curtains and foam are interesting ideas but this is to go on HER wall, not ours, so she has to like it. And we're talking 17 FEET of shared wall. Our wall is now covered with a floor-to -ceiling, wall-to-wall book shelf FULL of great insulating books! And btw she is a separate tenant NOT our mother or mother-in-law.so raspberries to whoever suggested we move. UH, did you not see the part about disabled, low-income and uh, we JUST moved in!? So I will revise the question: Does anyone know where I can get cheap corkboard and can it be painted?
