Any Nursing Home's charges for the "elderly care" is based on their assets! so if this is your mom,grandmother or close family relative, be sure to move her assets to you, or someone in the family that can be trusted. Never, ever, let the Government get their hands on it. See a good Estate Lawyer now, before your relative is in care. Good Luck....Source(s): Paralegal....

The state Welfare department pays the bills and has a legal right to recover the amounts paid out to a Welfare recipient.
So, if there are assets to attach, the state will attach them.
