My sister really wants her close to her. The only place on earth my mom wants to be is close to my sister and her family. We are in Ohio, sister is in Virginia. I am learning about this but I have found out that Medicaid doesn't transfer from state to state. So I'm thinking the only way this could happen is through self pay. Mom is nicely hooked up with an assisted living waiver through medicaid. Just getting facts at this point. Thanks for any info. Mom has been in AL since November.
