I was made POA for my Mom while she was in a nursing home. I never signed ANYTHING with the nursing home at all. My Moms atty filed for Medicaid and I maintained paying her bills. I NEVER used any money of hers for my personal use...all bills were paid for her solely...mortgage pmts, utilities, credit cards, health insurance. Now I am being sued for the outstanding balance of $100,000 because I am the POA. My sister in law (we do not speak) had signed the admission agreement with the nursing home....I have NEVER signed anything with the nursing home at all. I do own my home, I am on a fixed income, retired and disabled and I have a mentally retarded son. I don't want them to attach a lien on my home because that is all I have......HELP!!!!! AM I RESPONSIBLE IN ANY WAY.....THE SS BENEFITS HAVE SINCE BEEN SIGNED OVER TO THE NURSING HOME DUE TO MY REQUEST.......PRIOR TO THEM TRYING TO SUE ME.
