Things to Consider:What’s most convenient and realistic?Medicaid prefers you to move in with mom. (Exemption/2 year rule)If #2 doesn’t work, mom moves in w/ you, but these things should take place: a. Assess any potential family issuesb. Clear communication amongst all involved partiesc.Proof that mom moved in (bills, documents from dr. office)d. Deed house to momMom should pay for things from her own funds, rather than reimbursing you.Reiterate the importance of POAs, planning, etc.
