Her children did not transfer any of her assets so she has been paying the NH for about a year. She has about $50,000 left and she owns a house. We are in the process of spending down her money making sure everything is spent on her care and needs. She is 98 years old and was in good health until she broke her hip. She has not recovered enough to walk. She has dementia and some days has a hard time coming up with what she wants to say. My question is should we sell the house and just use the money to pay the nursing home as long as it lasts or keep the house? If we keep it, there are taxes, insurance and upkeep. She will not have any money for this. Unfortunately my husband will probably be the one to have to pay it. If we don't sell it, it will just be sitting empty until she dies. There is still furniture in the house as well as her personal items like picture albums, clothes, etc. Are we allowed to remove those things regardless of what we do with the house?
