My mom is in a nursing home. Before medicaid kicked in she had to pay her full way of about $4500/month until all savings were gone and proceeds from sale of home were used up. Her pension and social security now goes to the nursing home to partially pay her own way and medicaid makes up the difference.

So, see an estate lawyer to see if any of your mother's assets can be shifted to the family. Unfortunately, no matter how astute your investment efforts are, Mom will pay her full way as long as she's able.
