My mother is in a nursing home and on Medicaid. At the moment she has $2100 in her bank account. I've been told I should keep the amount at $1900 to make sure she doesn't go over $2000. I think I have to spend her money on her but she doesn't need anything. It's a little pointless to buy her $200 worth of clothes she doesn't need. Over time she'll have a ton of clothes she doesn't need. She really doesn't need anything. Does anyone know the rules about what I can do with the $200? I obviously don't want to do anything illegal. Anybody know what I can do?
