We are close to putting my Mom in an assisted living facility. She has been previously diagnosed with dementia and we now feel A/L would be best for her (and relieve my sister of caring for her). Most likely she will need their "memory care" facility which is locked down to keep her from wandering. My question is, will this entire expense (or a part of) qualify as medical expenses (for her Schedule A) as I project her taxes (and quarterly payments)? I know the IRS code says something about "medically necessary" expenses of nursing homes. Will this apply to assisted living and her situation? I realize this may not be enough information for a complete answer but any help would be appreciated.Thank you,Jim
