As long as Mom can pay for assisted living she’s fine. If she doesn’t pay her credit card debt, they’ll try to collect from her. Mom may be able to enter assisted living as long as she is currently able to pay.

I agree with Marie. You would just want to make sure that there are enough assets/income to sustain the monthly payments and other expenses.
