My mother isn't on Medicaid yet buts her income meets the limits. I've been taking care of her in her home (that she owns). We haven't signed up for Medicaid yet because the social worker say that Medicad will want us to sell the house to pay them back after she dies. Now I'm seeing questions on here about child care giver exemption if your child lives with you 2 years taking care of you that the house is exempted. I've had packages delivered here the passed few months but I still have an apartment that my son lives in which we are getting rid of, and also if she does get Medicaid will they pay me for taking care of her or will that have to be paid back after she dies??
