Mom has recently spent a short time in a beautiful assisted living facility. It was really great...and luxury living. She thinks this is a place she wants to be in permanently. At $350 per day, she cannot afford to live the rest of her life there. They do not accept Medicaid
All,this makes me wonder. Can someone tell me the actual logistics of this process?
When the money runs out, do they simply put her on the street? Do they move her to a Medicaid only facility? What exactly happens when she has spent all the savings and investments?
We looked at several places for a temp stay. Some of this place are really awful! But, among those places accepting Medicaid that are not totally dreadful (none were actually OK) ....they all require self pay for some period of time first. What happens when all the money was spent at a different place? What becomes of the senior then?
