We reside in Washington state and have reviewed the information on-line, phoned and emailed, but so far can only come up with the definition of a caregiver. I understand that the guidelines can vary state by state. Should I be keeping a daily calendar? Have a physician sign something? Have DPOA? In my case, my husband and I have lived with my 89 year old mother for several years and as I understand it if as her daughter I have resided in the home for more than two years and am her primary (re only) caregiver we can protect her home (only asset) in the event she needs Medicaid at some point. Just as an added note(s) my brother is deceased, my sister has been out of the picture for 20+ years. Thank you.
