I would first check with assisted living facilities in my area or call A Place for Mom and ask about payments. Alabama has very little assistance for someone to pay assisted living expenses. I suppose her only income is Social Security and she receives benefits from Medicaid. If your state's Medicaid does not pay for assisted living and she has no savings it may be difficult to move her. If she qualifies for skilled nursing care physically and qualifies for Medicaid to pay for long term care a nursing home may be a better answer.
