Question about inheritance while in Nursing Home
Let's say - made up story - That mother has some money - not much - maybe 60,000 and goes into a Nursing Home - which she would pay for every month and if it is 10,000 a month - pay for the six months and then the state takes over.
If she receives an inheritance - let's make up amount...100,000 but has been in the home which state has been paying for six months - would the home then take that 100,000 to pay for the last six months which were "free" for her and then take out the 10,000 for the rest of the four months? I guess that would make sense, right?
And what happens to her house if she decides to go into a home? Would it have to be sold BEFORE she gets into home or does the Nursing Home "own" the house to get the money to pay for the months that otherwise the state would pay for?
I make up these scenarios to get an idea of how things work.
