I'm really hoping that you can help me as you have been so wonderful in the past. My Mom applied for A&A about 4 years ago. It was a rocky start but now she and Dad receive about $200 a month, get their scrips from the VA etc. When they applied their assets were about $50,000. They sold their primary residence at the end of 2012. Their assets now are around $100,000. Dad is in a nursing home and will either be transferred to an ALF or come home with at least 12 hours of care. He has Alzheimer's. When Mom went to the local VA office to ask about help with that the person she spoke to scared her to death by telling her that if she has assets over $80,000 they will lose all of their benefits, including prescriptions, etc, and have to pay back all of the money. Is that true??? Going into an ALF or having home care will cost them between $4,000-$6,000 a month. And while they may have over $80,000 now that will diminish quickly. She's 85 years old and never thought about this effecting them. She asked me if she should transfer money into an account in my name so that she has less than $80,000. I'd appreciate any guidance that you can give.
