Mom in sub-acute, headed for long term care soon. Daughter in home - Mortgage questions/Medicaid spend down.
Mom owns her home with her daughter. Had been paying mortgage. Now headed from sub-acute to nursing home wing. Can she pay May, June, July mortgage now without a problem from Medicaid? (My thinking is that if she will never go home, they won't like her paying mortgage while in long term nursing home.)
I know she can pay $ on the mortgage itself, but her daughter cannot afford the home after mom's $ is gone and will be going into foreclosure. They are very upside down with house value vs. $ owed on mortgage now.
Talked to eldercare attorney, but very evasive about this.
