Living in Lawrence Kansas, and may have to go into a nursing home. We are in our home and it is paid for, we just pay taxes and insurance on it now. We do not want the house sale money to go to a nursing home, Do we have a way out of this mess? We want our children to have the money, what can we do? We have done research on staying in the house, and do not believe it is possible., at this time.How long do we have.?
