My mother-in-law lives in an assisted living and has been approved for A & A. We are now waiting the approval of an fudiciary. This has taken 6 months. Her money was running out and we had to put her house on the market. It has sold. Now - what do we do with the money from the sale of the house? It will be over the $80,000 limit, but she has to have the money to pay for the assisted living. Is there a special trust to put the money in to shelter it?
