Who pays nursing home when you die?

Normally any debts a person has when they die (such as outstanding fees to a nursing home) are paid out of the estate of the deceased person. If there is not enough money in the estate to meet all the debts then the people owed money get only a share of what there is. Relatives do not have to make up the difference unless THEY told the nursing home THEY would pay the nursing home costs (and signed a contract to this effect).


What if you need To be in a nursing home but you make too much to qualify for medicaid but not enough to pay for the nursing home?

Are adult children responsible for their deceased parent's unpaid nursing home bills?

No. Not unless they agreed in writing to be responsible for those bills. A parent's estate is responsible for paying their debts whether those debts are for a nursing home, credit cards or utility bills. Their property cannot be distributed until the debts are paid. If there are not enough assets in the estate the creditors are out of luck. The exception is mortgages. If the mortgage isn't paid the bank will take possession of the property by foreclosure.
