I was told by 2 separate people that if my parent lives with me, there is a specific amount of time,(they thought about 6 months), that my parent would then become a part of my household income and they would no longer be able to get medicaid help if I felt my parent needed to go into a nursing home. My mother has dementia and I have been told it is only going to get worse.. I have children still living at home and have a very busy life style. I want to help care for my mother but, I want to know that if I can not handle her care any more, I can still put her into a nursing home with the help of medicaid. I can not afford $4000,00/mo. I live in Louisiana.I would appreciate any helpful information someone may have.
