We are about to bring my 90 year old father home from a nursing facility. He can't use his hands due to severe arthritis. He can only partially bear his own weight. He can't move himself in bed. We know about the MedicAid spend down requirement, but we are trying to weigh the advantages/disadvantages of nursing home care verses caring for him at home. Once he qualifies for MedicAid, how much is he allowed to pay us for room and board? Is there a separate $ amount made available for me as his caregiver? Anything else we should know?
