Her only child, my husband, died 10 years ago. She is 91 in a wheelchair, lives at home alone and pays a woman to help her. She is declining and may need to go into nh, she has small savings to pay for it for awhile and would likely need to go on medicaid. She thinks I'm her family but I'm not really related to her and I'm afraid they will come after me to pay for it. I'm 70 and need to look out for myself. I'm not uncaring about her, but this is one aspect about it I'm worried about. I live out of state about 2 hours away from her, usually try to visit sometimes. I read horror stories about nh sueing children of residents for payment. I'm not really her child but I'm all she has and will probably be listed as family. I have never contributed financially to her. What should I do to protect myself?
