My mom is in assisted living. I have power of attorney and have managed her finances for a few years. The few years she has been in assisted living have taken a toll on her finances. We currently have her house on the market to generate more income, but it is going slow. Of recent she has had increased expenses, roof replacement etc. She does receive a monthly disbursement from an annuity, but the annuity over the past 6 months is not earning much. We have recently decided that it has become necessary to move her out of state into an assisted living near me. She has dementia, and her needs have become greater. I am scared to make the move now, due to finances. And really feel at loss as to how best manage what she currently has and how to best manage the money received once her house is sold. I had looked into a VA benefit a few years ago that would have covered good chunk of her assisted living costs, but my Dad's term of military service was just outside the window of time VA requires. I really don't know who I should talk to, and I don't know what kind of financial advisors I should go to that would best help me. This worry is causing me increasing anxiety, sleep loss etc. Generally the stress is affecting me physically and emotionally. I try to cope with moms situation, and keep myself together for her best interest and mine. If anyone could give me direction in getting the counsel I need, or offer any advise, I would appreciate it.
