We are paying all the utilities, his food, taxes, etc. Nothing is in his name. He has his own living space, bedroom and garage. He would like to pay me rent on a monthly basis, but I am concerned this would affect the Medicaid look back period if he needs nursing home care in the future. Does anyone know if this can be done without affecting this? Would this be considered a gift since it would be on a monthly recurring basis? He is in decent health now and is independent.
