Mother is ninety years old and still in the house she purchased sixty years ago in New York. Because she was an Educator her pension and SSA (Medicare) make it appear she makes a lot of money when, in-fact, it all goes to house necessities, basic living and maintenance emergencies. Therefore our Social Worker advocate got her qualified using the "pooled income trust". I'm still unsure how it works, even though I have read about it and she has explained it to me. So I am asking the Aging Care community for any advice, experiences or pitfalls you have gone through. I am mom's oldest and currently staying with her until the home attendant is solidly in-place. We already have a person in-mind who mom likes, but are open to interview one or two more candidates. ThanQ!
