Social Worker wanting to get mom to apply for aid, she means Medicaid, there is no other aid right?
My Mother has assets, I have researched Medicaid laws and have seen real life experiences as well. If my Mother applies for any aid at all, she releases all of her assets to the Government right? She can pay her own way for many years, but if she applies for aid that is taken out of her hands right? Also checked Living assisted facilities and they have 2 lists one for people who pay their way and the Medicaid list that is long and no one seems to get to.
I am concerned she is being encouraged to apply for aid, and social worker does not seem to be up front with details, also she wants her insurance papers and funeral policy to apply for this aid. I want my Mom's rights protected and the very best for her, I am worried is this a common practice?
Is this indeed Medicaid? Why would they need these documents?
