If my mom has to live in a nursing home will they just take all her money?
Mother had a stroke. Went from hospital to rehab center, now is being moved to skilled nursing home for rehab. Medicare/insurance pays for the first 10 days and day 11 to 100 mothers cost is $50 per day. She may be able to return home or may need to live in nursing home. Her house just sold last month and I would like to help her retain some of that money if possible. If she has to live in a nursing home will they just take all her money? Is there somewhere, legal, I can keep some money for her? Can she legally give any to family members as gifts? How much?
