My 83-y/o mother is a nursing home resident in my town, and I am her POA. My husband and I would like to retire to NC, but we are uncertain whether to leave my mother in MD or take her with us to NC and a find a NH placement there. She needs 24/7 care because she is not ambulatory nor can care for herself without several caregivers. If we postpone our move until my mother passes, it could be years (my husband is 73, and I am 63). I could travel back and forth to visit her and manage her care, but I expect to work part time when and if we do move to NC. If we take her to NC with us, will her Medical Assistance that covers her nursing home care in MD transfer to NC? Any suggestions?
