Does she have any assets to pay for her care?
Or would she be relying on Medicaid to pay for any long term care?
Ok, then Medicaid will put a lien on the house for any benefits that they pay out for her, but won't foreclose on that lien until she passes away to force a sale of the house to be reimbursed for the benefits.
It typically takes about 6 months after the death of the benefit recipient before they move to foreclose on the house and force a sale..
