I do know that Medicaid systems encourage a care environment that is cost effective as long as the individual receives safe care. The fact that her caregivers are nurses should not affect her eligibility. I would think that would be an asset for her. Before I even applied for Medicaid for my cousin, I contacted one of the local Medicaid counselors to ask questions. He was very helpful.
Each state have ombudsman services available for the elderly. You might have your parents contact their local ombudsman for assistance. Nevada’s Department of Health Services should be able to help them contact the ombudsman.
I wish you well in obtaining a successful care situation for your grandma. She is blessed to have children and grandchildren who want to care for her and keep her safe.
