Legal Answers
Q. My dad is 93 and can no longer care for my stepmother who can't walk. What will happen to her if he leaves her
A: Below is a link to a video I created that explains how to get help paying for home-health care through Medicaid-planning. https://youtu.be/b2pt20YdjLc
Q. My mom moved in with me so I could take care of her as she does not want to go into a home. She paid off my mortgage.
A: Unfortunately, its her house (partially, as she's on the deed) and you cannot force her to spend her money as unfair as it may seem.
Q. I recently bought a home with my grandmother and now i must put her in a nursing home can medicaid take my house?
A: If it is your and your grandmother's homestead and, especially if you and grandma own is as "joint tenants with rights of survivorship," then the house will be safe from Medicaid and probate.
