If an adult child qualifies as a caregiver whose care kept the parent out of a nursing home (for more than 2 years), how much right will the child have to the parent's home long-term? The home is in an irrevocable trust. The parent's Will gives the house to the 4 children. The parent may need to go into residential care sometime soon. Although there is some income, Medicaid will be required to help. If the caregiver successfully petitions to keep the house, will the house get deeded to him permanently? Or can he just keep the house (and pay expenses for occupying it) until the Will comes into play?
