    My mother-in-law, who is 88 and the widow of a WWII vet, will be released from a rehab facility in next couple of weeks and will need home care for at least 4 hours per day (if not more). Only asset is her home, and only income is social security. Satisfying A&A income test after considering cost of home care should be easily demonstrated, but my question is how long do we need to be paying for home care to substantiate it before filing; 1 month, 2 months? Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks, Larry

    Once she starts receiving services on a regular basis, you can make application as costs are counted from the date of application. You do not need to wait once she is home and care is coming in.
