My mom has been living with me for the past 4 yrs. Her checking acct has my name on it and after talking to the bank they said it is a joint account. I have been spending my own money to pay for her meds, food, medical supplies, etc. Her social security check goes in the acct every month. She recently went into the hospital and is now moving to a rehab facility and then possible long term care. If she does go into a nursing home for long term care, will they automatically get the money in that joint acct? I am no longer able to care for her due to her decline in health and mobility. I work full time and I've used all of my paid time off/ FMLA.
