My parents have both been receiving the Aid & Attendance benefit for a few years. I am the fiduciary and we pay my sister to care for both my parents who have dementia. Last week we received a letter informing us that my mother will be receiving about $50,000 as an inheritance. My understanding is that this money is considered income. How and when do we report it? Also, the day after receiving the letter my mother fell and spent several days in the hospital. She is home and we have hired in-home healthcare. It is very expensive. We need additional help beyond just my sister. How my mother improves will dictate how much additional help we will need, but the reality more help will be needed than what we had last week. My intent is to utilize the inheritance for my mother's care. How does this factor into the scenario? Any help you can lend would be greatly appreciated.
