I am an adult child with 2 elderly parents who need Medicaid. I've read the application process for different states and all of them seem to set a certain household income limit only (ex: $17K annually for a household of 3 people). My annual income is above this limit, which means that I cannot physically live with my parents since our household will go past this limit and thus they wont be eligible for Medicaid. Is my understanding correct? If so, does this mean all elderly/low-income people have to live by themselves, even though eventually they may not be physically able to anymore? I would like to help my parents with household chores however it seems like the law doesnt allow this. What can adult children do in this case?
