I'm helping my Grandmother apply for A&A benefits. She is hoping to move to an assisted living facility, but still lives in an apartment right now. Can we apply for A&A now or must we wait until she is living in an assisted living facility? It seems that question 40a on the 21-534 form would be greatly changed. (That's the question about on-going medical expenses.) This amount will increase by about $3700 once she moves in. Any advice? Such a basic question, I know. Thanks for any insight.
