I am currently the main caregiver of my parents and I have POAs. My mom is in an ALF and on LTC waiver with Medicaid. My dad is still living with me and my sister taking turns since he can no longer live alone without mom at the house. I have parents house for sale. I can't keep maintaining it and paying for mom's ALF portion that Medicaid does not cover. I have seen several attorney's to get advice on what to do with selling of the house. I am on the deed as a Life Estate along with parents. If I sell the house I know Medicaid is going to look at that as income because of the 5 yr look back period. I need the income from sale of house to use for their medical expenses and ALF care. Right now I can't put dad in ALF because I don't have enough to cover for 2 parents on the social security they get combined and still taking care of their house that I am having hard time selling. I've seen several elder attorneys and each have given me different scenarios that made no sense to me and only confused me more and left me with a sense of they weren't sure what to do either yet they are an elder attorney. Anyways, I am thinking the best thing to do is put the income of sale of house if and when it happens in a trust, but which kind of trust? there are several from what I have read.... I just want to know that the money will go to their ALF care for as long as it can and that their Medicaid LTC waiver will not get taken away. Can anyone shed some light on this? It seems quite tricky. Also does me being on the life estate of their house really mean anything since they are both still living ? I'm guessing not. Appreciate any feedback. BTW, this is all taking place in FL.
