She has no property, and a joint bank account with me that is only used for her expenses and income from social security and an annuity. She right now has too much money to qualify for Medicaid. Recent hospitalizations and decline in cognitive functions are making it more difficult to care for her at home and we will be looking at assisted living options soon. So she will be using her funds to pay for this and eventually need and qualify for Medicaid. It seem that Medicaid is always looking for reimbursement and would they eventually look to us and our income since we claimed her as dependent on our taxes?
