Sometimes people give away valuable assets before they die. This can cause problems if it affects your eligibility for long-term care Medicaid. Also, you might need the money or property to take care of yourself before you die. There may be other problems if you give away your assets.
Before giving away valuable assets, talk to an estate lawyer who knows the rules for long-term care Medicaid and the likelihood a Vermont court would reverse the gift.
