My husband has dementia and getting beyond my ability to care for him. I went to an Elder Law lawyer but he suggested I use Medicaid and put him in a nursing home. In my state Medicaid would allow me to keep our savings by using a Medicaid compliant annuity but I would lose most of our income. I looked into ASL/dementia care and seems I will have the same outcome financially so it makes sense to me to go with ASL/Dementia and retain my control over my finances plus I think my husband would get better care as he is not bed bound at this time and several of the places I visited keep them to the end by bringing in Hospice. So am not sure why lawyer recommended NH other than the $10K he would charge me.
