My mother is a 79 years old widow with alzheimers. She lives in Eastampton Township NJ (Mount Holly) I am an only child and I myself have
been sick myself for the last 5 years and I would hve a very difficult time caring for her 24/7. I do make sure that she sees her family doctor on a routine basis as well as her neurologist and cardiologist.
Her only income is her Medicare payment once a month and about $50-$100 per month from my dads former employer. Her home is paid for in full.
She has about $150,000 total in various bank accounts that are in her name AND my name.
Can you tell me how the costs of her nursing home care would be taken care of? What are the steps ?
