Penalized Because of Theft

I feel for everyone I have read about on this website. I am going through a very difficult time taking care of my brother with late stage dementia.


I live in Arkansas, he lived in Arizona until I had to rescue him from a business partner who was robbing him blind and mistreating him. He has lived here with my husband and I for 2 years.

The stress level has been unreal and I am about to lose it here.

I have tried to get long-term-care Medicaid help twice now and was denied once and about to be denied twice, even though I hired a lawyer this time,that I could not afford.

Problem - this business partner failed to steal 1/3 of my brother's house and land before I snatched him from her clutches. The business partner and her 2 sons are some evil, wicked people.

To acquire Medicaid I have to pay down $30,000 for my brother's share of the Arizona land. Who, on low-income and elderly has that kind of money?

Not me.

Gosh, someone steals your property and they get away with it all, but try to get help when you can't even enter your own property anymore, and you are penalized.

I am 71 years old, my husband is 77 and almost died on me with meningitis last year and is ill with COPD and having memory problems of his own.

I can't deal with two men with memory problems anymore. My mother died in a nursing home with dementia in 2002, my older sister is dying in a nursing home with dementia right now.

My younger brother Jack (whom I care for) has dementia, my youngest brother in Nevada has early stage dementia - so that leaves me standing, but how much longer.

There is no one, but me to care for my brother Jack. Where is the justice in all of this mess. Guess the bottom line is the evil people always win!

Can you get a reverse mortgage on your brothers property?

So Sorry

I'm so sorry you're going through this. I wish I had advice for you, but I don't.

The only thing I'm wondering is, would it be in your brothers, and your, best interest to sign over his remaining property to the evil business partner.

Would that help you to get the medicaid assistance you need? I really hope help come to you soon. You have way too much on your shoulders right now.
