My mother wants to add my name to her home to make sure that there is no problem after she passes. I am already named on the will as the only beneficiary because the rest of the family have already been provided for. When we asked her lawyer about this a couple years ago he said at some point we would want to add my name but not in the next 5 years because of medicare and long term care.? i did not understand because we both made it clear she would never end up in a nursing home. I am her only caregiver. I do not get paid by an outside party and never have. We are living off of her retirement and social security We also raise my daughter together. She said she just wants to call the tax person. I thought this was something that had to be done by a lawyer.
