My dad is in a nursing home (in the hospital right now) and I have my mom at home. Dad receives SS and a VA pension which is still not enought to cover his nursing home not to mention pay for mom's house and her needs. I was told by medicaid that with the pension he makes too much money. Where do I go from here? A lawyer? An advocate of some type?
