Proceeds from selling primary residence...over 5 years ago
Mother sells her home and moves in with daughter and the money that she received from the sale is in a CD in her name as well as two other family members. Question is ......mother has been living with daughter for 6 years and daughter is primary caregiver, 24/7. Could daughter be given a check for the care of the mother for the last 6 years. Up to this point the daughter has only used mother's medicare check to help take care of her and not accepted any additional money to assist in caring for her. She is now going to need to move in order to acquire a home for mother and daughter that is easier to take care of as well as more handicap accessible to help aid in the care of her mother. Mostly concerned with how Medicaid would view this in the event mother has to go to a NH. She would still have some money left after paying the daughter for her care, however, it would probably run out rather quickly since most NH's charge 5000 to 6000 per month.
