My 95-year-old Mom lives 1,000 miles away in another state, and she's in an independent living apartment in Section 8 senior housing. Her only income is $800 a month Social Security. She's all set up with Medicaid benefits in her state, which pays for a beloved homecare worker to help her out three days a week. Besides losing some memory, she's really OK where she is at least for now. I would like her to move here to my area to an independent living place so as she ages I can keep a closer eye on her, but according to my local geriatric consultants, independent housing managers, and state/city housing departments I've talked to, she will lose all her Section 8 and Medicaid benefits if she moves here. My husband and I can't afford to support her financially, and my worst fear is that she'll end up in a nursing home in her area with no one to visit her every day. What would you all do in a situation like this?
