When a Loved One Moves Into a Nursing Facility: What To Do With the House?

pexels-photo-432722 (1).jpg

Placing an elderly parent into a nursing facility is an emotional decision. If your parent owns a home, figuring out what to do with their home is difficult. Should you sell the home or keep it, and what's the best way to sell it when you've got so much else going on?

Find the Right Level of Care
If you're still searching for a nursing home with availability, look for a place that offers the right level of care for your elderly family members, given their health needs. A Place for Mom is an online tool that connects families with skilled nursing facilities. Check out A Place for Mom at www.aplaceformom.com.

What to Do With an Elderly Parent's Home?
Renting out an elderly parent's home may seem appealing, however, being a landlord is a full-time business.

When you're dealing with caretaking for an elderly parent who is in a nursing home, you don't need another huge project to take on, such as putting a home on the market. Real estate agents may want you to make repairs or stage the home for the market, which takes time away from visiting your aging parents in the nursing home.

Rather than work with a real estate agent and pay them commission, look for an all-cash buyer. These buyers are ready to move forward quickly with a home purchase regardless of the home's condition. This is the simplest option for an elderly parent's home.

Get a Cash Offer Today
Don't waste time putting a house on the market when you can get a fast cash offer from Houses Wanted. Someone will come look at your parent's home and make an offer to buy the home as-is -- no waiting, no delays, no repairs, and no mortgage financing.

My Mother got Sick and I Needed to Sell her Long Island House Fast

Real Life Customer Review:

My mother's health deteriorated quickly and it seemed almost immediately she was no longer able to live on her own. My sister and I tried to take care of her but we have our own health issues and could no longer provide the care that our mother needed.  We had to get her in an assisted living facility.

At nearly $6000 per month for assisted living and associated expenses my mother's nest egg was rapidly decreasing. I had listed her house for sale but it was not in sellable condition.  After months of disappointment I did not know what else to do.  The listing agent was a family friend and tried his best but was not able to sell the house in the condition it was, knowing our dire need to sell the house to pay for my mother's care he suggested that I call Houses Wanted.

Within a few days Houses Wanted had arranged everything for us.  We had a cash offer and a closing date.  My prayers were answered. I was so grateful.  Thanks so much to all the folks at houses wanted. "I needed to sell my house fast and you listened to my needs."

My Mom Moved Into an Assisted Living Facility

After receiving a frightening call from my mother's neighbor that she had fallen I realized that it was time she move into assisted living.  Luckily this time she was not seriously injured but she could no longer safely live alone.  My mother was resistant at first about moving out of her house but understood that it was for the best.  She had so much on her mind I did not want to worry her about the high cost of her care which was to be $5000 per month!

I said that I would take care of selling her house to pay for the assisted living care.  The problem was that her house needed many repairs, some of them extensive.  There had also been an addition to the house many years ago.  The work was performed without a permit and was not up to code.  I was very concerned about how I would possibly find a buyer.

I discussed the situation with my husband and he agreed that a "traditional house sale" was out of the question.  I asked what he meant and how else could we sell it?  Even if we tried to sell it ourselves instead of a Realtor the buyer would need an inspection for a loan approval.  That's when I learned about cash house buyers. 

My husband knew about Housed Wanted from a co-worker.  Houses Wanted bought houses for cash in any condition and without an inspection. I felt that our prayers were being answered.  We called to set an appointment late Friday afternoon and by Saturday morning we had a CASH OFFER from Houses Wanted and went into contract.  I could not believe that they were willing to buy the house in its current condition but apparently they have been buying houses for cash for over twenty-five years.

I don't know what my family would have done had we not known about Houses Wanted!  The sale of the house gave us the money we needed to pay for the cost of my mothers assisted living placement.

Assisted Living Checklist: Things to Consider when Choosing an Assisted Living Facility

1. Location:

 Is the facility located close to family members so your loved one does not feel isolated.  A town or city which is far away can cause them to feel alone and depressed.


2. Lighting:

You want your family member to feel good.  People often underestimate the psychological effect of poorly lit living environments.  Are the rooms bright and cheery with plenty of natural light.  Are the hallways and common area's lit with a combination of natural light and warm artificial light.  Avoid institutional looking sites with cold fluorescent lighting or those with dark living areas which lack an abundance of natural light.


3. Nature:

Gardens, greenery, trees and water all contribute to a serene environment which helps a loved one feel at peace and calm thus contributing to good health. Avoid building which do not have adequate nature elements.


4. People:

Are the staff well trained and friendly?  Do they smile and appear genuinely happy to assist in the care of the elderly?  Do the other residents seem social and pleased with their 'home'. Ask what screening and background checking are required of employees. Ask questions and determine how long some of the employees have been at that location. A high turnover rate could indicate other issues.


5. Medical Care:

 Is there a resident doctor on staff.  What medical care or they trained and capable of?  How far is the facility from the closest hospital or medical center?

These are just some of the initial points to consider when researching an assisted living facility.  Taking time to thoroughly investigate all aspects of each location will pay off by insuring your family member is safe and happy.
