Yes, unfortunately in all likelihood the home can be foreclosed upon by the mortgage holder. States do have exceptions for disabled persons but they do not apply to valid foreclosure proceedings. However, if it is something other than a mortgage default, a primary residence can almost always be protected from a forced sale by a judgment creditor. It would be prudent to seek advice from an attorney qualified in elder law concerning possible future litigation connected to the foreclosure.
