No, I think you should find placement for her in California, where she can get Medi-Cal and her granddaughters can still visit her. Let's face it, we are not getting any younger either. Dementia patients do very badly on airplanes and you could end up de-planed at a hub with no way to travel on. Compare Medi-Cal to Michigan's programs, which are limited to X number of participants. So many children have done what you are proposing and lived to regret it.
