Now that's a comforting thought.
Does this SIL have any 'special' meatloaf or casserole recipes he's been trying out on you?

This is exactly the situation that I was hoping to find. Seems like this is a regional thing and somewhat "hit or miss". After looking in my DW's aunt's area, the pickings seem slim.


I'm still looking. The wife is asking questions, I keep making excuses, ...

zero,
Your first post indicated that your wife's aunt did not live near you. Is she (and are you and wife) open to the option of her moving closer to you? Would that widen the range of possibilities for senior housing?

Thanks for bringing up that question (and answer is "not sure, but doubt it", because she is well established, friends-wise,where she is living in her state and we are in CA but moving often). She is a distant relative but one whom the DW "loves".

Zero, I agree that the reverse mortgage is a bad idea (fees and so forth), but I'd like to say how really nice it is that you and your DW are helping her with this decision. Y'all are good folks!

There is another thread on this forum about the a reverse mortgage situation when Medicaid might be required for LTC in the future. Both of his parents and eventually his mom might might not be able to leave her own home due to the Medicaid 5-yr. look back. The laws to be changed to exclude the value of the home when a spouse is involved so the spouse is free to move to a more appropriate living situation if needed.

That reminds me of just how easy it is to be "good folks".
Especially when the DW tells me "Hey Bozo, for once in your pathetic lifetime....".
No she didn't But not saying she wouldn't.
