The fourth hypothetical is based on a married couple in their eighties with two children. Andrew and Kate have two children, Mark, an adult with autism who lives at home with Andrew and Kate, and Donna, and adult child who lives with her family in a nearby town.  Andrew and Kate can no longer take care of Mark and have requested that Donna make arrangements for Mark to move into a group home.  Andrew and Kate have limited assets, but desire to provide some money to Mark.  Donna has to time to make the appropriate arrangements but is concerned with affecting Mark’s entitlements.
