     Mom is 88 but still takes pride in her appearance.. When on Medicaid, the $71/mo won't come close to covering extras. I think if she feels better about herself, it has to be a positive on her mental health. (Hair=33/week, nails=$35/mo) plus there will be clothing. OTC meds, etc. My hub. and I can't afford it and I have a bro & sis who are deadbeats. Medicaid is very strict abt. "spending down."
