My mother’s income falls into the “makes too much income to qualify for additional assistance.” I’ve heard of several things that can help with this, such as charging her for care, charging her rent, (we live in an apt and share the rent-we’re both on the lease) and disbursing her income in order for her to qualify for additional income. She is just over the threshold and would not be able to afford assisted living. What does one do in this case? Is the only option to bring her home and take care of her on her income? That’s also quite costly in the long term.
