The VA does not care about where your mother lives - strange, but true! What they care about is - "What is she paying for her on-going medical expenses and what are her assets?"
Based on your original question - moving out of home due to lack of funds to pay for home care - it sounds like she may sell her home, which would increase assets, so a test would have to be done to make sure her assets were in line - anything up to $80,000 should be no problem - over $80,000 would depend on the level of care costs in relation to her income.
So, if the sale of the house leaves her with less than $80,000 and she is going to be paying the same or more for her home care, you should not have a problem. Don't forget - if you are providing care, she can pay you for that as well!
