What is the name of your state? Kansas
Since my mom lives with me and my husband in our home, can she share in the expenses of this home? I am her Representative Payee and just received a form from SSA to fill out and am unsure as to what is customary and usual for this type of form. I have totalled all her expenses, including RX's, doctors appts costs, hair salon, nail salon, personal items, etc. but have questions about 2 raised toilets and back stairs (shorter) for her convenience. Also, can we charge her room and board, for extra food and utilities, gasoline for outings, mattress and boxsprings for her bed, etc. (other items for her convenience). She was in assisted living until 2.5 yrs ago and they were not doing a good job. She had several health issues that should have not gone unnoticed but were and that is the reason she no longer lives there. I take care of her 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for respite care on Mondays, alternating 2 hr then 4 hrs each week. Need advice please.
