I have been caring for my 88 year old father since 1989. He is 88 and blind, with dementia, and has lived with me for the past 17 years. The dementia has been rather severe for the last several years, and he was quite abusive and demanding. After recent hospitalization, he has been placed in a nursing home. They get his Social Security, he is on medicaid, has no assets and is basically destitute.
I have recently been declared disabled myself, my health is not good. I have a modest house, a car but that's it. I know this may sound strange, but I am terrified that Medicaid or some other agency or the nursing home will force me to take him back home. I have done all I physically can. Legal advice?
