My aunt is in a nursing home, I have spent year selling her house ect. Aunt has been in nursing home for a year private pay now trying to work with nursing home to get her medicaid as she has spent down. I have been doing everything from finding a home for her cats to selling her house. Am i entitled to ask for or pay myself a small fee for all this work.She had no children and a widow.She needs long term care,i have P.O.A. do her laundry visit her 3 time a week to make sure she has what needs and wants. The stress of having to be her voice. Things that the nursing home told me according to medicaid are not true. Example for a year i drove 150 miles round trip to take care of her house mow the grass get her house ready to sell and sold it in one month i made 15 trips. Medicaid said i was not entitled to put gas in my car or eat lunch using her debit card. I am very stressed out that they may want me to pay back what i spent around $2000.00. I am on a fixed income also they make me feel like I'm a thief. There was no one else to do what needed to be done. Help we live in kansas. What i did was for her benefit not mine. Thank you for your time.
