I have been the live-in-caregiver for my mum for a year as well as her POA etc. Mum does not need to go into a care facility yet but I have one major worry when that time comes. Do I sell her house while she is still living in it and then look for an appropriate care home OR do I place her in a care home and then put the house on the market? I live in Canada and the city I live in real estate is very high but the market is quite slow at the moment, my fear is that if she goes into a care home first and she is paying $5000 a month to live there and we can't sell the house for a year, that is $60,000 that has been spent for her in the care home while still maintaining her house until it sells. That is the bulk of her savings. If we do it the other way, how will we ever sell the house with her in it? I really could use all of your suggestions. Thank-you!
