My father has been taking care of his sister since 1965 until her death this year. She had to spend all of her money for the nursing home, before assistance would be given to her. My father would mow her lawn, maintain the house, take care the finances, and whatever was needed. In 2003, she had a stroke, but was incapacitated whereas my father did more. Then in 2010 she had to go back to the nursing home and finally she actual spend all of her money for care. My father applied Medicad for her. She broke her hip in the nursing home whereas she couldn't go back home. The house was still in her name, but my father had to spend his money to take care of her in the nursing home because they took her check, and medicad didn't pay all . He continue to take care of water, electrical bill for the house, mow the lawn and took care of maintain. My father is elderly and this was the family home. Is there anyway that he recoup the expenses he incurred, as well as the administrator fee from her estate.
Further, can he sue the nursing home for breaking allow his sister to break her hip?
