My mother who now has advanced dementia gave us a lump of money two years ago as a gift from her estate. When she gifted this money she had clarity of mind and we were actually surprised she wanted to do this for us. There is now a possibility that she might have to go into a nursing home because her mental health has declined drastically. Now, we are being told that we might have to repay this back to her estate for her care. We are floored! We don't have this money any longer and would have to take out a loan to repay it. When it was given my oldest brother and sister who have power of attorney assured us this would not be a problem. Can anyone fill us in on what's happening here?
