My mom has lived with us for 13 months. When she first moved in we used money from her savings to prepare our house for her. She is not at all mobile. We had to convert our dining room into a first floor bedroom ( close off walls, add carpet,baseboard heat,lighting fixtures, new bed,lift chair and stair lift to get to bath tub)
Now she is unable to get into tub so we had a walk in shower installed which required pulling up old tile and replacing it.
We have all receipts . Will Medicaid penalize her when she applies for benefits when the time comes to move to a nursing home. Her aide feels this step is coming sooner then we anticipated...she can barely walk, is almost 92 and beginning dementia..
