Mamma Lee is a very wealthy lady but wouldn't we all be well off if we sold everything we had, received a big insurance pay out on a departed partner?
The amounts of money spent were greatly exaggerated too. $175000 for a year in reality would be about £90000 which is still appears way out of reach of an average persons income.

Her total annual expense of around $90k, all found, no bills of any sort, no car, no fuel bills, no tax, doctor and medical facilities just minutes away 24/7 and absolutely nothing else to spend to provide a life of absolute luxury. Not bad for a lady who must now be into her 90's.
Normal Nursing Home charges are way above that in America so there is no contest.
