Will Medicaid take jointly owned property for a nursing home?
My mother divided her property between her 9 children about 8 years ago. She left the house and surrounding land to my youngest sister. That is now in joint ownership having my mother's name and my youngest sister's name on the deed. If she needs to go into a nursing home can the government take the home and acreage from my sister?
