Nursing homes/assisted living
How can a family with minimal savings afford a nursing home? My mother's need for in-home care has depleted nearly all of her savings except her home. Now she has home care folks in 24/7 at a cost of $600+ per day! Her money will last less than two months at that rate.
My sisters do most of the care and decision making for her; I am on the opposite coast, awash in questions and guilt. I don't know where to start in terms of figuring out what's best. My sisters are nearly to retirement and are worn out and overwhelmed. Who or what can any of us turn to?
