My mother in law lives in Florida. Two years ago she was determined to lack capacity. A guardian was appointed for her and ultimately she ended up in a nursing home. Her home has since been sold. Medicaid has been paying for her care and we are told they have a lien on the account containing funds from the sale of her home. We live in California, she is in Florida and we have never had access to any of her funds. Based on what the house sold for, I would say she has nothing left. In her will, she left many relatives money, and they are under the impression they will get it. I am sure this will be a big issue one day and I am glad the guardian will bear the brunt of it. Any advice?
