I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I can understand how this can be very frustrating for you, but I believe I have information you will find helpful.
If you will be seeking medicaid benefits to pay for your mother's long term care, there are spend down requirements regarding her own assets. Additionally, there is a 5 year look back, as far as any gifts she makes, which could delay eligibility.
I do strongly recommend you speak with an attorney experienced in elder care and estate
planning. There are mechanisms to protect assets, such as income trusts and enhanced life estate deeds. However, it is important to set these up with counsel. It is complicated and a mistake could be very expensive.
