Hi, I have been taking care of my father since I was 18 (22 now). I moved in with him knowingly giving up much of my life to dedicate to his health and well being. He had taken a bad fall leaving him mentally and physically disabled. Recently, he has fallen again but now due to the severity of his injuries..he will not be able to return home. I have built my life here in his home. I hardly have money because I haven't been able to work a steady job due to caring for him despite my efforts to find something flexible enough. His future points to long term nursing home... will medicaid come after the house although I am living in it with no where else to go? I'm scared, freaking out, and on top of this I'm dealing with the heart break of my fathers current condition. I don't have power of attorney because by the time I realized I should have gotten it, it was too late and his mental illness declined greatly over the past couple of years. I have things ready for legal guardianship... is that really a good idea though? Basically he had a TBI, Traumatic brain injury from the first accident..giving him the symptoms of dementia, he now suffers another TBI. Not sure if I put this in the correct topic..
