I moved my mother to a full assisted Dementia clinic in Colorado about 5 years ago. She lived in Nebraska and owned a home. I was told at that time I could not sell it as the state would take the sale money. Her care is paid for my Medicare and Medicaid of Colorado. Her house has been sitting empty all this time and is deteriorating and got some damage from a hail storm. The homeowners insurance company said I should get the house put in a trust and rent it after I fix it with the insurance claim money. They said by doing this the income would go into the trust and neither Medicaid or Medicare could touch it. I have full power of attorney. I cover all the expenses of my moms house for insurance and property taxes as she ran out of money so I cannot afford to hire an attorney to take care of this. Does anyone know how the trust works and if I do create one and rent the home would the income remain safe in that trust?
