My step mother has been in a nursing home for 10 years. She has no cognitive ability left. She has about $216,000 that her daughter (POA) is using to pay for her nursing home. But even though her money is protected by a post nuptial agreement and Dad has no access to it, he still can't apply for Aid & Attendance. He is just barely able to cover his bills now, and another increase could cause him to be homeless.
