My mother has been receiving Medicaid in a nursing home for four years. Now we want to bring her home (to her daughter’s) for the remainder of her days. What is the disadvantage in doing so?

Q.  My mother has been receiving Medicaid in a nursing home for four years. Now we want to bring her home (to her daughter’s) for the remainder of her days. What is the disadvantage in doing so?

A.  There should not be any disadvantage. Depending on your state, you may or may not be able to get some Medicaid-covered assistance for your mother at home. In some cases, even the family member providing the care can receive a stipend.
