My mom is in Assisted living and is quickly running out of money because of rising rates. I have enough to get her to October 2020 and then need to look at nursing homes. I'm driving myself crazy to figure out if I can get any assistance to fund assisted living for as long as possible. I am searching for cheaper places but most are comparable base rent and level of care. Cost is at about 5,500/month. There is no way I can fund this. Her social security is $815/month. Is there anything I'm missing? I think that once she's in nursing care it will be a quick decline.
