My mother in-law is terminally ill. We are assisiting my father-in-law

My mother in-law is terminally ill. We are assisiting my father-in-law in organizing some estate issues. They reside in Virginia. They have an enormous amount of medical debt from her illness. The families primary concern is how to secure their house and family heirlooms against collection should something happen to both of them. In the event she passes away quickly he may simply file bankruptcy to discharge the medical debt. But in the event something happens to him what is the best thing to do? The house has a lot of euity but is not fully paid off. Can we put the house and any heirloom antiques etc into a living trust? Or is a standard Will sufficient in this instance? Or is there a better way to handle it all together?

Living trust question:Considering to have a Living Trust

Living trust question:Considering to have a Living Trust for a disabled child and a healthy child - how can it be done? Do I need a lawyer or a firm to be a "trustee? Which one is better, an individual lawyer, a legal firm, an accountant firm, or any other firm or individual? How do I decide from the above categories? and who to hire? Why? If an individual lawyer or accountant, should I worry about what if one day the lawyer/accountant no longer in practice, retired, or pass away? What about my Living Trust at that time? What if these things happen after my death?
