I am POA of my 84 year old aunt. She lived on her own and was very independant. She fell and had a stroke. We live in Ct.
She is in a nursing home for rehab. They met with me on Monday and told me she may need to be there because she cannot take care of herself. She has maybe about $28000. No life insurance and gets $1200 from ss. I am looking for an elder attorney. I need to find out if I can set up funeral arrangements before all her money is gone. Can I be paid for her care and can I use her money to pay for the attorney?
