My father will soon be discharged from skilled nursing rehabilitation after having had a bad fall and a two week hospital stay. I now have power of attorney and have discovered that he is heavily indebted and, while he has assets, they are not liquid - all real estate and many are mortgaged. The skilled nursing place is giving him about 20 days total, maybe, and it's obvious he will require more care than we, his children, could ever offer at our homes. What is the best course of action? Do I or can I pay assisted living and stop paying mortgages? And what do you say to assisted living? There is no way I can make his properties liquid in two weeks. Below is a breakdown of income/assets/liabilities: Pension and Social Security income of $5,700 a month $50k of unsecured debt, likely due to dementia even pre-diagnosis. He has 6 properties: one is a half an acre that can't be built on reasonably; two downtown properties in a small southern town. Could price at $190k and he owes $70k for payoff. 3 rural properties - 48 acres paid for; 25 with barn and silo with tax value of $196k and owes $91k for payoff; another with a house and barn and two acres that he has nearly no equity in, but he is most emotionally invested in for some reason. Thanks in advance for any helpful advice.
