The nursing home will take my dad's SS check and my mom will only have hers. She gets a decent about, just under 2k a month but need to find her a cheaper apartment asap because she won't be able to afford the rental she's in soon. I contacted all the low income housing I could find, but there's not much regular housing around that meets her price point. Any advice? Have you had to find another place for mom in a very short time?

See an elder law attorney. Medicaid details especially not leave the community spouse impoverished.

If dad is going on Medicaid to NH, your mom may qualify for spouse allowance. Couples get different evaluation and a little extra to keep her there while you find a place could help. NH is not who decides community spouse. Medicaid case worker can evaluate.
