My dad remarried in later life and his Parkinson’s has progressed to the stage where we all agreed assisted living was needed 6 months ago. Cognitively, he has good days and bad. Unfortunately he only has so much money and within 6 months, all of his money will be gone in order to pay for the assisted living facility. The family would then like him to get on Medicaid to pay for the facility. But his wife doesn’t seem to understand how this will affect their joint finances. Ever since he’s moved in, she has seemed to become more detached from the situation. Now she is suggesting one or more of his sons should try and obtain guardianship over him. The family can’t afford to pay for this facility when his money runs out, and he seems happy living there. We are confused about how to move forward with Medicaid (which the facility will take) when his wife doesn’t seem to understand how such an application will also affect her. Any suggestions about how to proceed would be most appreciated.... thank you.
