So Mom is now living back in NY, in a nursing home. She still thinks she is going home to Florida someday, but her health has deteriorated far beyond that possibility.
To pay for the nursing home pre-Medicaid, first we have to spend down all her assets and sell her house. She gave us about as much of a go-ahead as we expected to get, so we put the house on the market last Wednesday and I planned to tell her right after Thanksgiving. To our surprise, the house sold within about eleven hours. Now, not only do i have to tell her we put the house on the market, but I have to tell her it is under contract and i need her signature on the papers.
I think she is going to have a meltdown no matter HOW I handle it tomorrow (Sunday 11/29), but if anybody has any suggestions as to how to do this and not leave any casualties, I'd love to hear them!
