My dad entered the nursing home 5 days ago for long term care. The business office called to talk about how I planned to pay for his care. He has a long term care policy that will pay $100 per day up to $100,000. He has a few investments that will pay for I guess, about 6 months of care. He still owns his home, but has been living with me due to his vascular dementia. He has been renting the home to my daughter and son-in-law. The business manager said Medicaid could put a lien on the house to pay for his care. Clearly I did not understand anything I read about owning a house and Medicaid. This may sound terrible, but I oh so hope my dad will be out of it enough that he never has to know he lost the house. That was his legacy. He was so proud!
