Liz, who is single, travels frequently on business.

Liz, who is single, travels frequently on business. Art, Liz’s 84-year-old dependent grandfather, lived with Liz until this year when he moved to Granite Falls Nursing Home because he needs daily medical and nursing care. During the year, Liz made the following payments to Granite Falls on behalf of Art:

Room at Granite Falls

Meals for Art

Doctor and nurse fees

Cable TV service for Art’s room


Granite Falls has medical staff in residence. Disregarding the 7.5 percent floor, how much, if any, of these expenses qualifies for a medical expense deduction by Liz?
