My Dad (94) was recently accepted at a Veterans home. I have lived in his home taking care of him and my disabled brother who is now 62 and a sister who has lived here since she was 12 yrs old. She is 52 and employed. I have POA for health and financial for my father and the house is in trust in all 3 kids names. My mother died in 1999. Home is about 45 yrs old and has not had much done to it all this time. I am basically talking about essential repairs that are needed such as bathroom, furnace, AC-not changing things out for the sake of cosmetic change or my wishes to update. This is also a tri-level home and it has become very difficult for my brother who has MS to live here. He is now in a hospital bed in living room and can no longer go to second level bedroom anymore. I think we would all benefit to leave this home and find something more suitable for all our needs. I am 65 and having my own issues with the upkeep and difficulty of living in the home. My father has a few bank accounts and I want to know if I can legally use that money to fix up a home that is in his name? By the way I have lived here since 2001 and been involved in their care since then but much more so in the last 2 years. I have talked to an attorney but I was curious to see if anyone has had this similar issue come up and what you did about it.
