My father was recently placed in a rehab after a hospitl stay. It doesn't look like he will be able to return home by himself. In order for Medicaid to cover his stay in a nursing home we have get rid of all his assets. If he gifts me his assets, (which I know the law says it has to be over 60 months) Can the state actually refuse him care? I mean if he is impoverished then he is technically a ward of the state right? They can not just throw him out into the street.
