I live in PA. I have POA for my mother. She has become a permanent resident in a nursing home. We are in the process of getting her on Medicaid. However, she still has her home. It's on the market but hasn't sold. Once on Medicaid they will take her Social Security Check. How am I as POA supposed to pay her taxes, etc? She has a Home Equity Loan, so can I use those fund since the county will have all her income?
Will I be liable in any way if I do so? There is no other way to pay her taxes and minimal amount of home maintenance otherwise without paying for them myself, and I'd rather not do so, for fear of not being reimbursed.
