I have just been appointed the guardian of my mother by a Florida Probate Court, and I will be setting up a guardianhip checking account to pay her bills every month. My mom is living in the dementia unit of an assisted living facility and will need to go on Medicaid before the end of the year. I want to know how do I go about keeping only a $2000.00 minimum in this account, when her ALF care is more than $3000.00 a month? Right now we are paying for her care with what little money she has and her name is on the waiting list for Medicaid. Any pointers and info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
