My father passed away several years ago. He was in the Korea War. I was told until all her money is going to take care of her, the benefits will not kick in. I have a part time caregiver helping me out. With mom's house bills, food, electric etc., I can't afford the monthly bill for the caregiver help. Does this qualify to get benefits?? Trying to keep mom in her house, I believe this is the best place for her.
