I am the power of attorney for my mother. She has a Durable Power of attorney document. I had to place her in a nursing home because of alzhemiers. She went in the nursing home pending medicaid . She owns nothing her only income is social security. They nursing home received all but $40.00 a month. Medicaid approved her but would not pay her first month of nursing home cost.
