My Uncle has been in a Florida Nursing home for 7 months. The cost of Nursing home is $10,500.00 monthly. His only income is Social Security $1317.00, and $1,187.00 is auto paid to Nursing home. The Condo which is empty is worth maybe 100,000.00 and the mortgage on it is 34,000.00.
Since my Uncle has no other assets, I have been paying the utilities, the mortgage and his credit cards because I am his POA and his beneficiary in the Will. The concern is that Medicaid will recoup their cost after his passing from his Condo and the Will deemed useless. If this is the case, covering any of the costs of the Condo would be a waste of my personal money which I have little.
Another mention I am in Las Vegas, NV and my Uncle is in Florida. What should I do? Thank you for your help.
