Questions & Answers

I am applying for Medicaid for mom, who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.  Medicaid officials are doing a five-year look back at her finances and they want an explanation and verification for a $2,200 withdrawal three years ago, way before she applied for Medicaid and way before she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's.  Can I say she gave the money to her grandchildren as gifts or should I say she bought a bed, mattress and dresser from an estate sale but I have no receipts?  She has no money to hire an attorney so I am lost.
