What options are available for a 94 year old widow that has been residing in a MD assisted living facility for the past 10 years, has no assets, no more money, and does not qualify for Medicaid? There is no capable family available to help with expenses or a residence. She has cardiac issues and is on hospice care.

Hello, I would encourage you to contact your local Area Agency on the Aging. They are available to assist seniors who are on a limited income. To locate the nearest Area Agency on the Aging click here: https://www.caring.com/local/area-agency-on-aging
