When the time comes to place mom in a nursing home, and Medicaid takes 2 pensions & SSI; who handles the month to month expenses of the home?
I am now the 24/7 live in care giver for my mom who suffers from Dementia/Alzheimer, COPD, Parkinson's and loss of bowel and bladder. If the time comes where mom requires a nursing home and medicaid is involved; the two pensions and SSI are grabbed by NYS. When that happens, who is responsible for the month to month expenses of the existing house which is far more than the small amount Medicaid leaves? I have 2 sisters who live on the other coast, and one hasn't spoken to her mother in 5 years and the other daughter makes her "annual visit". The house is in a living trust with the name of the 3 children. Knowing that the other two will not pay their share; how can I obligate them to pay?
