near family. Dad could be in independent living our mom does need fulltime skilled care. When mom passes the intent would be for dad to possibly go back to his home in Florida if he is healthy enough. They have a very small amount of savings. My family is not in a financial position to pay the electricity, taxes, etc on the house to keep it going while Dad is with Mom. If we decided to sell the home right away, we would still need to have those expenses paid from Dad's account while he is in a facility. Can we hold funds back from his account to cover these costs? We have been told that they need to use all liquid assets for care prior to medicare. The home was deeded 20 years ago into my brother and my name. If we use up all their money we have nothing left to try and cover the expenses while we sell their home or if my Dad gets better to eventually return. Any advice is appreciated.
