My friend is the sole caregiver and has POA for an 88 year old woman with dementia. She has taken care of this lady for the last 8 years. For the first few years, it was as a part time assistant, but since 2017 it has become a 24 hour job. The only financial assistance she receives is the lady’s retirement check, which is 700$ and mostly used to pay for food and expenses. The only asset the lady has is a vacant home that needs work and the taxes are past due. Several years ago, the lady stated that she wanted to leave my friend the house, but it was never put into writing , and she is not mentally capable of making that decision now. The lady never had children and has no family. Can my friend sell the house, and use the money to pay for ongoing expenses? Can she keep any money if there is any leftover when the lady dies?
