...I have about a day and a half of due diligence.

But that is not true. If Mom is in good shape, you have plenty of time to explore the possibilities. If the financial advisor tries to push you into something right away, take a hike. She obviously would not have Mom's best interests in mind.

If it gets to the nursing home stage, I am pretty sure the agreements made by the old folks with the nursing homes are that the nursing home takes almost all the income, and leaves just enough for toothpaste and what not. So the source of income becomes irrelevant.

I hope others will correct me on the previous paragraph. I'd like to be wrong, but I fear I'm not.
