... but it saves a whopping $2,500 a month! She thinks she has an unlimited amt of money. She does not understand that even though you may start out with-a kazillion dollars, unless there is no income generated, the money just gets used up. By doing this, I just gave her another yr in assisted living before she is placed on Medicaid. (The rates have gone up 4X this yr and I don't know why and even the mgr didn't have any useful info on that front.) Cousin P has no idea she has such a small amt left and I do not want to tell her. She is going to have an absolute fit! I dread it. She is the world's biggest Drama Queen. I am going to have to remove one dresser and one desk and one end table so that everything fits in the smaller room. She's going to protest but there is nothing she can do. I don't know whether to take her out of the building while this is going on or what to do! I will call the management and ask for help. They said they'd move the furniture. That was nice. I guess. The good news is, she gets to keep the cat. How do I go about telling her? And how far in advance? We are planning on the 16th. Her memory is shot, but she remembers anything emotional. That's the only part of her brain that "works." P.S. She has SS and two small pensions, but not enough to break even for even the smaller room each month.
