  • How Do I Go About Putting My Parents’ House in My Name?

    My father died in July 2023 in assisted living care, leaving everything to my mother. She has dementia, and will never go back to their house to live.

    My wife’s mother has been judged to be in need of long-term memory care. She has been approved for it, to be paid by Medicaid, but doesn’t want to go. She would prefer to stay in her apartment (which she can no longer afford) and have us pay the difference, or else move in with us.
