Subject: Re: List of Questions
List looks good. If I think of more today, I will e-mail you. I think the most important questions are the ones about the level of care as people get worse - or what mobility will they accept.
Also, I think we should start talking to Daddy about moving. Also in your "spare" time, Anna, you may want to look over the accounts that Mom has in that folder. Maybe when you are sitting there watching Mom sleep. Karen's husband who is an accountant thinks that we need to see about Daddy giving us a "gift" of $10K each, so that we can put that money in account for their care.
When you want Medicade or Care to kick in, they first will pretty much drain them of money before they will pay. If he could gift us that money this year, he can turn around and do it again in January. The $10K gifts are tax free. I know there are accounts in Best of America - I have money in that too. Their checking accounts don't have that kind of cash. I wonder if there are savings bonds in the saftety deposit box. Also, the fire box I think is in the closet in the pantry, I think.
I wonder if she left instructions on how to open it in all her information. I guess we need to take financial inventory. I can go when I get down there, but I guess you could take Dad and he could go open it. The key is in the box. Don't feel like you have to do all of this before you leave Anna. We have time, but just need to be thinking about financial stuff. Tom can do some and so can I.
