Moving is only half the battle. From the East to Nevada would entail changing insurance coverage and reapplying for Medicaid. Plus, the airlines only allow small POC units with forms filled out by an MD. If her O2 is a rental unit, she can't take it with her.

Yes, have her complete the DPOA before she moves in with you, and also, if she will be compensating you as far as paying rent, food, and time away from your regular routine/life, and transportation, she should sign some type of agreement regarding that compensation. Be sure to discuss these "money issues" in advance; for your own protection you need to know if she will be able to pay you, and also if there's any heirs or beneficiaries there needs to be something in writing where she clearly indicates, she is choosing to compensate you (and/or other persons ) for the care she receives. Best wishes with the transition and get that DPOA in place asap.

Jeanne, excellent question. Vegas, if you are anticipating Medicaid there are going to be many of those rules that may make Medicaid in Nevada difficult to obtain.

The POA is an excellent start. And before the move insist that it be taken care of. There are many on this site that have struggled with parents being obstinate and refusing to put one in place. This leaves them terribly handicapped when thing HAVE to be done.
