My mother-in-law moved in with us 24 months ago. We live in California, will her gift to us hurt her qualifications for Medicaid in the future if she needs it. Right now she lives with us and pays her own way. She has dementia

There is a 5 year lookback for gifts that Medicaid does when she applies.

I would get to an eldercare attorney (using her money) and get a better understanding of the Medicaid process.
