My husband and I live in California. We bought the house with my father in law about 6-7 years ago (50/50), the last 2 years he's developed dementia and slowly getting worse. He lives with us and has a caregiver during the week. His doctor doesn't seem to think he's quite there yet in needing a POA. The house is in a living trust which becomes ours upon his passing. I can't seem to find an answer if the house would be considered an "asset" of his or if it might be subject to repayment to Medicaid after the fact. We are not there in him needing placement yet and he has a decent amount from retirement, but we want to be prepared because we think if he should need to be placed in a nursing home his retirement won't last long and I believe the next step would be in applying for Medicaid. Anyone have experience with this in California? I heard it can vary from state to state.
