Must have a good pension if persons monthly income can cover almost 8-10k a month. I would say they are over the cap for Medicaid but not enough to pay privately. In my state the is a Miller trust where the overage goes into the trust and when the person dies, it reverts back to Medicaid. Its a different name in some states.

Assisted living is your other option. The cost is less than a NH. What is going to ur friend is the care part is going to be where u will see a cost. Als have a rental cost and then the cost of care. Members do talk about "Board and Care". This is a place with few residents and caregivers.
