She is 100% disabled with Parkinson's, lives in assisted living, and her expenses for assisted living, medications and medical copay exceeds her income, therefore we pay the excess. She has no property nor trust.
The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
As dependant total household income inc yours.Is used If she is living in assisted then apply for medicaid and longterm care usually for persons over 60 but there are exemptions. Does she have medicare. Does she qualify for skilled care. Unfortunately assisted living unassisted living is more than most of populations Soc Sec and definately more than SSI. contact your Local Elder Affairs and Soc Sec volunteers they will help with any programs avail. for extra funds. In FL it is Sunshine Volunteers.
Any money you pay for her keep will be considered a gifted and or income.AND can keep her from getting benefits.
She needs Lonterm care if she is Parkinsons disabled. Try the foundation maybe a volunteer advocate can help guide you.
I also suggest eldercare lawyer to help set things up for her to qualify for medicaid. Some are volunteers some are income scaled. call Public defender office for info re pro bono or scaled legal assistance available in your area or Courthouse.
Go to Parkinsons foundation see if anyone in area can help you with list where to start. Longtermcare usually has deadline of Nov. for applications usually for 60 and over designed for persons with medicare. But, not necessarily true. first word you say when looking for help should be disabled dx Parkinson. ok .Best wishes.
