My daughter has been living with me for several years and helping to care for me. Can I transfer my house to her?

Under the Medicaid law, your home can be transferred to your child if he/she was residing in your family home, using it as his/her primary residence for a period of at least 2 years immediately before the date you became institutionalized, and provided care to you which permitted you to reside at home, rather than in a nursing home.
