Once your Dad runs out of money he can apply for Medicaid.   When you say that Dad has an income of $53,000 do you mean he receives that as pension, social security, and other investments?.... or do you mean he has $53,000 in savings?

It will be good to sell the house and put that equity into a money market to use for payment to Assisted Living.

Once Dad runs out of money, he can apply for Medicaid which will help pay for his care.

The best thing to do is to find a continuing care facility that takes not only self-pay but also Medicaid.  That way he can stay in the same place, still be with new friends he has made, and have the same Staff.
