My mom is low income on medi cal and currently receiving IHSS benefits as well as within a month of her name coming up on MSSP program in San Diego county. I am near Sacramento, Solano and San Joaqin counties (centrally located) in northern California and would like to move her preferably to a assisted living facility near me.
As I understand it the ALWP is on hold and the wait list is possibly 4 to 5 years (way too long for my mom in her condition). My question is can I move her near me and keep her benefits plus transfer her upcoming MSSP benefits without a problem? Are there other options to the Assisted Living Waiver Program? Her doctor has already said she would approve her for nursing care facility but we are trying to avoid that for her sake as long as possible. Are some counties better than others for providing benefits for seniors? Since I am centrally located I would like to move her to a county that would have the best support structure for her. In know lots of questions but this really is so confusing.
