She is still in the hospital and they haven't got back to me about anything at this moment. I feel like giving up since someone told me it doesn't matter at this point since they are going to put her in a nursing home even for rehab the state will take everything at this point and I would be lucky to have a car in my name and even that will be counted as gifting since it is within the 5 years limit.The lawyer told me that there is a chance to save the house and car since I've been taking care of her and been living here all my life and she adopted me as well but her other assets however will be taken so we can't do much with those even if its for long or short term care. However after a neighbor talked to me she told me it's not true and the state will take everything even before anything is signed over and it doesn't matter if I've been her caretaker or living here with her all my life. She said its better not to waste your money on a lawyer and just take what you can sell what you can and get out so the state can just take over because its too late to change anything. So now I'm confused. I'm getting this information and the lawyer and social worker and even the case manager told me the house and car can be exempted because I've been living here and taking the best care of her as I could. So what else should I do. I'm going to get another opinion on this since the lawyer was my 3rd opinion on what to do and she too told me the same as the social worker and case manager told me.
