She is 92 years young and in this retirement home of her choice in Canada. In 2 years her money will run out and she will no longer be able to stay there. Is there some help from the federal government we are able to check on?

Sharonjulia,
Americans must use their own money for nursing homes or other long-term care until they deplete their assets; then they can qualify for Medicaid, the Federal-state health program, a process that often leads to anguish and humiliation.
No such restrictions exist in Canada, where there are some means tests for government aid but families are not required to sell off their assets. Those who are better off may be required to pay more, but rich and poor live under the same roof, eat the same meals, go to the same social functions.
