All of her savings is gone. We would like to apply for Medicaid for her, so that would take care of the nursing home. But she still has her house, since the housing market has bombed out. We have had it up for sale for 1 year with no luck. When dad died 4 years ago, each child was given some money (that was their, husband and wife decision) Do the children now have pay that back to pay for the nursing home?
