Who do we talk to for financial planning for Mom? Elder law attorney? Financial planner?
Mom is 67, receives only Social Security and has no other assets. She lives with us, mostly because she lost her job and house when she had her stroke. Which impaired her vision. We would like her to live on her own. Right now, that isn't possible financially. Right now she can't even afford Visiting Angels.
I have questions about planning for her future and finding out if she's eligible for Medicaid, veteran's benefits, or any disability due to her vision. I don't know if I need an elder law attorney or a financial planner. Or if there are places that can answer these questions for free. It seems so hard to get clarity. Everything seems piece meal. Help!
I made an appointment with an elder law attorney and am now having second thoughts.
