Hypothetical case: Senior Mrs. X inherited a lot of money. She spent it all helping her grandkids (rent, utilities, hospital bills, gas, lawyers, fines, etc.). She is old and needs to go to the home but has no money. I know that indigent people have their nursing home care paid for. Here, in our small community, nobody even knows for sure who is paying and who is paid for. Same rooms, same care, same food, etc. To qualify to get help, how far back do they check your finances to see what you did with your money? If it is all gone, what happens? Grandkids are on services themselves, own no property worth anything, etc. Does the old person just go live in the park? Do kids and grandkids get billed and are expected to rob a bank or whatever to pay the bill? What happens in a case like that?
