Do children have to pay for a parent to be in a nursing home?


In Florida, children are not responsible for their parent’s cost of care in a nursing home unless they agree to be held responsible. It’s imperative when taking your mother or father or elder relative to a nursing home that you make it very clear that you are signing them in only as their agent and not becoming personally responsible for their debts.
