#1 Get a promissory note, in the form of a line of credit/future advance note, secured by the home, to be first in line to (at least) get back the funds you've advanced to protect the home before the state. You'll be third in line after the mortgages, but at least you'll be in advance of the state.
#2 Talk to an elder law attorney. Texas is one of the few states that does not put a Medicaid lien on the property when you apply for Medicaid. Texas, MI, PA, FL wait til you go through probate to claim the house, so avoid probate/avoid estate recovery.

If my Aunt passing while in a Nursing Home prior to approval of a Medicaid application, will the Nursing home be paid by Medicaid?
Unfortunately, this is not all that uncommon an issue. In Michigan, at least, the death of the applicant does not eliminate the entitlement to the benefits, provided that the applicant was entitled to the benefits if they had lived. So, the nursing home should be paid by Medicaid for your aunt's stay, if she was eligible at the time.See question
