My father died 13 years ago and I've assisted mom since. She currently lives in a nursing home in Louisiana. Mom had her attorney draw up a document that stated she was repaying me money for all the financial assistance I'd provided over the last 3 years. The money was proceeds from the sale of a home.
According to Louisiana Medicaid it's a transfer with no fair market value. I've used the money to continue paying for mom's care and there's not much left. Now the state says that I am responsible for paying $4000.00 a month to the nursing home since October of 2016 through the first of May 2017. I am unemployed and bankrupt. My siblings aren't in a position to pay it either. What can I do? I really feel like someone should have explained that I had to have a written notarized agreement before mom moved in with me or before I ever started helping her. Who knew? I'm about to go nuts with worry for mom.
