“Filial Support” Laws and Nursing Home Collections

We read an interesting article today, posted on the Elder Law Prof Blog. It includes an interview with the child of a nursing home resident — the child (not the resident) was successfully sued for a portion of her mother’s nursing home bill. We thought it would be of interest to our readers, as well.

This is a topic we have discussed here (with the able help of Prof. Katherine Pearson, one of the Elder Law Professors in charge of the blog linked above). It is a worrisome issue, though we have not seen the tactic employed in Arizona.
