My dad who is 93 years old, and a WW2 vet, is in a assisted living facility. I want to apply for A & A, but before I do all the work/research, I want to know about the Determining Countable Income. Specifically the $80,000 threshold. On the "How to Apply for Aid & Attendance" section, it states, "An applicant must have on average less than $80,000 in assets, but on another section (Determining Countable income) it's stated "As a rule of thumb, assets should not exceed $80,000". That amount drops depending on age of claimant. My dad is 93, so how much does it drop? Is there a age where there is no dollar threshold? Can I include my mothers independent living costs along with my fathers?
