My mil was in the nursing home some years ago and they took her house so she could get on Medicaid. She died.
My husband kept waiting for them to “ take the house” like they said.
Unfortunately he rented the house while his mother was in the nursing home and used the rent to help pay the nursing home.
Also unfortunately, the renter was arrested and sent to federal prison.
The house sits abandoned with the guy’s stuff cluttering the inside.
After a year of this, my husband was finally able to speak to someone who knew what was going on and they said they had been unable to contact him !
My mil was in her 90’s
My husband is 78
After mil’s death, he has had several strokes and other health problems.
He is barely able to care for himself, much less to be harrassed by Medicaid and told he must empty, prepare and sell this house and give them a certain amount of money.
He is trying to sell the house to a guy he met years ago who is having fun telling him that he will buy various properties and who knows what all ( we are not supposed to know of this “secret relationship”)
Is there a way to get Medicaid to just take the house and quit harrassment?
Husband is only surviving son and thinks he can handle this.
And what will happen when he is gone?
