The ALF is demanding I now surrender the 2019 COLA amount of 2.8% to contribute to Mom's care. Mom is under full Medicaid Waiver. The ALF raised the monthly rent $100/mo in 2018.

I find this a little off-setting, as I have to continue to pay for Mom's bath supplies, clothing, shoes, OTC stuff and haircuts. I don't mind paying the contracted amount, but after the $100/mo increase last year, topped by my monthly costs for Mom it seems they are being greedy. I also just paid out $300 for a new air-mattress for Mom's hospital bed.

Am I being unreasonable? I understand the Medicaid Waiver ALF's fall into a distinct category since they are supplemented by the govt. Any information of clarity is appreciated. Thank you.

All of her income is supposed to be going to the ALF with Medicaid paying the remaining balance. She’s allowed to keep $35 a month for personal needs, under FL Medicaid rules.
