My mother moved into an assisted-living facility last year. Her income consists of soc sec, a pension, and some stock dividends. She has some savings which she draws from periodically. Fortunately, her income comes pretty close to covering her cost of the assisted living facility.Also fortunately, her medical insurance usually covers the majority of her medical expenses. She receives the minimal amount of assistance in the facility, i.e. she pays the lowest rate (though that may change in the coming years).Are any portion of her assisted living costs deductible from her state or federal income tax? If she requires more care in the coming years, will those additional costs qualify as deductions?
