I think medicare is in.I own the house and she wants it sold she wants us to spend our money now to spread out how much we pay, using some of her money mixed with ours to have mom's money last longer. I say let mom pay until she has no more and medacal will kick in. she says but the house is in both names, mom and ours, but the deed says it's our property. Is the house a problem? We can sell it but we bought it for them and the money would go to us. She is taking care of the money and bills now, without anyone auditing and I feel that we are contributing without the same from her.Everything of importance is gone, somewhere. My husband trusts her completely, however, so the missing objects is of no importance. She still has $40thou left. Does it make sense to continue to help pay for mom at this time?

Remember, not just Any lawyer. You need to see the lawyer that specializes in Elder Law. Very important distinction. This lawyer will be able to tell you what might be a problem when it comes to Medical..... The land under your names but the house under all 3 of your names may cause a problem when applying for Medical. The lawyer will be able to give you advice to avoid this.

You REALLY need to get to an elder care attorney to find out about this. Im not sure what you mean that house is in both names, but comingling your funds and mom's is going to cause money down the road, i would think.

Sally, if you own the house and the deed is in your name and that of your husband [I assume "our" means your spouse], then your sister-in-law doesn't have a say in when you should sell your house.

Unless your Mom had contributed to the buying of the house if bought within the past 5 years.... the number of years that Medicaid will look back at your Mom's financial records. If Mom didn't offer any money to help you buy the house, then there isn't an issue with Medicaid.

Please don't co-mingle you and your husband's money with that of your Mom's. That could create a financial nightmare for your Mom with regard to Medicaid.
