Mom is in LTC and about to requalify for Medicaid and enter the spend-down process. On April 1, her benefits will go to the nursing home, except $50. She has stage 4 lung and liver cancer and they have recently started her on morphine to ease her breathing. Hospice thinks she has maximum 3 months left. LTC will be $11k per month, which we will have to pay back through Medicaid after she dies. Mom has some assets and a 2nd loan we could use to try to get her back into her house for a short-time on private pay before she passes. She would need 24 hour care. For the few thousand $$ extra per month for a short while, I would love to get my mother home. I know that’s what she wants. Has anyone else done/tried this? Is it realistic? Would welcome thoughts and experience.
