Family financial help to get Mom into assisted living facility.

Started by

Our mother, in Florida, has a modest condo( paid off) and about $30k in the bank. Her SS check would cover the monthly fee. Her condo value cover the would the assisted living facility entry fee. However the assisted living facility says she needs about $30k more to qualify to get in. If we put an additional 30k in her acct, can we take it out at a Later date, if it seems she doesn't need it for her month to month expenses? We just want her to get in to one of these facilities while she still might enjoy what is has to offer for, as she is needing just a little help at this time. Mom is 90. Any ideas?
