Q. I have been taking care of my elder parents, my father passed, my mom is in long term, i live in their home
A: You don't automatically get title to the house just because you have been paying her mortgage. However, may I suggest a lady bird deed: read more about it here: https://www.elderneedslaw.com/blog/lady-bird-deed); or watch video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeOHKsLiY9M. Finally, for assistance with your mother's long-term care, you may want to discuss, with a medicaid-planning attorney, how to protect her assets and get Medicaid to pay for some of her at-home care expenses. Learn more here: https://www.elderneedslaw.com/medicaid-planning-attorney Good luck to you!
Q. Should I move money from our joint account to protect it?
A: Hi there. First off, placing these assets inside an irrevocable trust while your grandfather is in a nursing home is the worst possible idea. The reason is - he doesn't have time to wait out the period of ineligibility that will be imposed after transferring assets to the irrevocable trust (the more money that goes into the irrevocable trust, the more time his nursing home bill wont be paid... just depends on how much money is transferred). There are plenty of other ways to protect his money and avoid this transfer penalty. https://www.elderneedslaw.com/blog/can-i-gift-or-give-away-assets-if-i-am-on-medicaid-or-want-to-apply-for-medicaid
Q. What is statute? If someone has dimentia and it’s medical records can they change poa and will
A: Just because someone has dementia does not mean that they, definitively, cannot sign a new POA or Will. The test is whether the person was lucid at the time they signed the document. In other words, did they understand what they are signing when it was signed. Dementia is a spectrum. Meaning some people have a mild form that causes occasional forgetfulness and other people, sadly, wont recognize their own family. Some people are lucid during different times of the day. This is sometimes referred to as "sun-setting". Whereby in the morning they will be clear, alert, oriented, etc..., but as the day goes on they start to lose their capacity. I hope this helps.
