More often than not an individual cannot afford to stay in their home. Options in some places are limited. When there isn't an ACLF or other group home, a nursing home is sometimes the only choice. Of course, the value of the home (assets) will be used to pay for the care until the it runs out and then Medicaid will kick in.

Caring of the elderly is always tricky. My mom has Alzheimer's and is burning through her assets and will likely be broke before she dies. There are some funding sources but my siblings and I will have to pony up some big bucks until mom's condition gets to the point where she "must" be in a nursing home and then Medicaid will take over.
