Paying for asst. living privately, no Medicaid. My mom is in Alzheimer's assisted living--very expensive. We've been paying for her care through her private funds, but long-term we need to sell or rent her house to subsidize her care. What kind of professional should I consult about the pros and cons of selling vs. renting in her situation? An elder care lawyer? A real estate professional? An accountant? No Medicaid is involved.
