First, stop beating yourself up. You did what seemed best at the time. Now I agree with mrsribit that you need to see an attorney specializing in Elder Law. The fact that there is even a specialty in this subject should tell you that it is very complicated to navigate among the laws and regulations, and you can't feel too bad about decisions you made in good faith.

Sounds like you need to talk to a lawyer that specializes in this kind of thing. What do your kids think?
