My 80 yr old mom is currently in a rehab facility (after falling 3 weeks ago), she spent 3 days in the hospital (after being admitted from the ER), then transferred to rehab after her hospital stay.
As some of you may know my mom has no other assets other then get home which she has a reverse mortgage on.
Her limit (to draw anymore funds from her home is down to $48,000).
After that is gone, she has no other $ other then her paltry SocSec ($700/monthly).
My mom wants to desperately go back home to live but her imbalance issues are still what's preventing her from being able to walk unassisted & I am afraid she will be in danger if she goes back home (she lives alone) w/her small dog.
I live nearby but must work 6-7 days a week so I can't be there w/her for anything other then making daily stops to clean her house, do laundry, run errands, etc.
I don't not have a large income myself in order to help pay for 24 hour live in nursing care & even if I did, her house is not set up for that.
Would my mom be able to move into a "senior" building or is that called "assisted living" building so she can be in a smaller (apartment, since her house would be too much for her to maintain) and most important have a daily home visit from someone who works in that building?
Would Medicare and/or Medicaid (she has both) pay for that?
Thanks to all who respond.
