Q) My 94 year old mother who is in very poor health has been getting home care (now around the clock) for 7 years. She is living in a relatives home and paying half the home expenses. Based upon her expenses VS. assets, she will be broke in April 2015. Her current net worth is $26,000. Who do I talk with to initiate Medicaid help and a move to a nursing home by April 2015?
A) Please call your local Medicaid Office and speak with a counselor regarding preparation for your mothers nursing home care.
