My mother is in a nursing home and is on Medicaid. I have a quit claim on her house and land and this will transfer to me when she dies (this is in Florida). For the past several years, I lived at her house and helped her. I was there mostly to be around at night in case she fell (which sometimes happened) or there was another emergency, and to make sure she took her medicine (morning and night). Until she moved to the NH she did not need full nursing care. So, right now I am still living in her house, paying the utilities. The house is an inconvenient distance for me from work. I also find it kind of depressing to be in that house. I was thinking of renting an apartment closer to work, while I would still pay for the upkeep on mom's house (and keep it vacant). The house has her furniture and stuff, except for a couple of rooms I used, so her stuff would stay there. My question is, are there any Medicaid issues for her or any property issues for me if I were to move out of her house and change my address? Remember, I am not going to rent out or sell her house or anything while she is alive - right now it's her house - I just want to take care of utilities and any upkeep for her house but move to someplace more convenient for me.
