My mother just went into a nursing home. If I have been helping pay her bills for the last 3 years at $1,500 per month, can she give her house to me in exchange for me forgiving the financial assistance, based on it being looked at as a loan? Will this work in regard to Medicaid eligibility in Nebraska? Can this be done now, after she is in the nursing home, and the Medicaid application has been filed? We did do a quit claim deed a few months ago, where she, me, my wife, and my brother are joint tenants on the house.
