The ward is in a nursing home under medicaid. Her house taxes and insurance are not being paid. there is little money in her checking account. The ward has quit claim deeds jointly for her sons to claim house property upon her passing. Does the conservator have the legal authority to sell the property? And secondly, be reimbursed for improvements to the home with the sale of the home? Can the expenses be paid prior to sending balance of the sale money going to the nursing home and medicaid Thank you, Gene
My dad has passed away 20 years ago. The quit claim deed specifically states ownership upon passing of my mother (the ward). If she is in nursing home with advanced dimentia and under medicaid does the sale money go to medicaid totally? Why can we not get reimbursed for 100% of actual repair and medical expenses?
