The suggested distribution of your mothers assets is not too risky in my opinion. Nursing Homes can be expensive, have you looked at Assisted living? Also not cheap but a better quality of life that may put off the dreaded nursing home senario for some time. Also additional help in the assisted living area maybe cheaper than the nursing home, again with better quality of life. If you thing she is going to be needing this in the next few years start looking at facilities NOW so you will be prepared and have a feel for those in your area or her area, now thats another choice problem. If you do any amount of investing on your own you might take a little of her money and see what you can do with it in terms of rate of return.Good Luck.
