My mother is in the beginning stages of Alzheimers. She is originally from Ohio but has lived with me in Florida for the past 6 years after my father passed away. My family would like for her to move back to Ohio in a nursing home there. We are currently looking into prepaying her funeral expenses to use her assets in that way. Since she lives with me, her expenses are not greater than her income which is about $1,550 a month. Does she need to wait to move to Ohio to apply for Medicaid or can she begin the process in Florida.
