My mother, age 81, is a resident of Delay Beach Florida. Palm Beach County. She currently resides in an Assistive Living Facility in the Memory Care Unit. I live in New York and I am trying to sift through all this information in an effort to assist my family going forward. My mother owns her own home, no mortgage and added my younger brother to her deed a little over one year ago. He has an enhanced power of attorney and has a care giver agreement with her. He is partial/fully disabled (per NY State). He currently resides in her home in Florida and up until now has been managing her needs/money/etc. Until the present time, her expenses at the Assistive Living Facility have been paid through private funds which have now run out. We are processing/ will be processing an application for Medicaid in Florida. My question : While my mother is alive, is my brother allowed to keep 100% of the proceeds from the sale of my mother’s home for his own use or will ½ be his and the other ½ my mothers. I expect that Medicaid (5 year look back) would expect reimbursement for the $ laid out at the time of annual re-evaluation/reassessment of needs?
