Your parents are important to you, and you may have hoped to be able to care for them for the rest of their lives. However, when your mother or father became too ill or required special medical attention, you made the painful decision to find a nursing home. One of the hardest things you may have done in your life is to take the leap of faith and entrust your loved one to the care of relative strangers.
Whether you have your finances in order or are struggling to get ahead, receiving notice that someone is holding you responsible for another person's debt is rarely welcome news. In your case, you may be concerned that the nursing home or long-term care facility where your parent is staying will inform you that you owe thousands of dollars in unpaid expenses for your parent's care.
