I know assisted living is not covered by Medicaid or Medicare. Here is the scenario: two married elderly people still live in their house. They get Medicare, and social security and pension money. The husband falls ill, unable to walk, incontinent, has dementia, and the wife can't care for him by herself. They make too much to qualify for Medicaid so he can go into a nursing home, but is this true? Are there ways around it? Just asking, looking ahead for someone, who is worried. (will consult an elder care lawyer eventually, just want some idea what to expect, what to ASK.) Please direct me to the proper pages pertaining to this, on this site? Thank you.
