My dad thinks he knows the laws and doesn't want to hire elder lawyer. Thinks it's a waste of money. But he has too much for government assistance. He may need to go to a nursing home but doesn't know how to protect my moms portion of their house and investments. They don't have a whole lot but enough to not get any assistance. Any nursing facility or home care they will have to pay for. He is afraid they will eat up all they have for his care and she will have nothing left to live on. Help?
