Welcome to Just Answer. I am here to help you resolve your tax and finance concerns. Please feel free to ask anytime you need extra help.
The only potential problem area is that you may be questioned about the money you paid yourself for the "work I have done". If this is deemed appropriate for their care then it will be allowed. You should be sure you have records to substantiate everything if it is questioned. If it is not allowed you may be asked to repay this to the nursing home before Medicaid will take over the bills.
