Between social security and a small pension my MIL earns too much for Medicaid (around $1,500/month). She has no assets (cash or otherwise) except a condo she owns worth about $160K, where her grandaughter and great-grandchild live rent-free (they pay the taxes, maintenance, condo fee, etc.) She is getting worse by the day and a nursing home is the next step. My guess is that we're going to be about $5K a month short of the monthly cost .... my MIL really wanted to leave the condo to her grandchildren, but that may be impossible. Do we have to sell the condo to make the payments? What happens if she outlasts the proceeds from the condo? Is there anything we can do to get help from Medicaid? Thx in advance for any suggestions ... I know many in this community are facing similar challenges.
