In some circumstances, transfer of your home is allowable.
You can transfer an interest in your home to a sibling, if your sibling already has an equity interest in the home and has been living in the home for at least one year before you became eligible for long-term care.
You can also transfer your home to a child if he or she was living in your home for at least two years immediately before you became eligible for long-term care and provided care to you which permitted you to stay at home.
It is also possible to have your home transferred automatically upon death. This is done by creating a life interest in the home, keeping the right to sell it during your lifetime, and giving a child, sibling or someone else a future interest in it as your survivor.
This lets you continue to live in and own the home, sell it later if you want, and say who you want to get it when you die. In order to create or change an interest in your home, you need to have an attorney prepare a new deed.
