You would need to file an application for Medicaid benefits for mother if she needs to go into a nursing home or long term care facility.
Father can keep up to $113,640 in assets, not including the house, and still have mother qualify for benefits.
As long as father is living in the house, or a disabled child, then they can't lien it and force a sale to pay for any benefits.
