If the house is owned by you - I don't know how anyone could put a lien on the house unless you signed for whatever debt mom is incurring.  The Caretaker Child exemption becomes important in getting a person Medicaid eligible.  If there was a gap between eligibility transfer of the house, and Medicaid, your mom might be responsible for those costs.  But still, I don't know how a lien was imposed with out a judgment or some other court proceeding.

Elder Law
As adults age, they often lose some mental acuity while also facing more physical limitations. These health conditions put senior citizens at greater risk of exploitation and abuse. At the same time, the elderly need to think about their long-term medical and financial needs, and make estate plans to ensure their legacy after they pass away. An elder law attorney can work with seniors and their families to address issues such as advanced directives, powers of attorney, living wills and last wills and testaments. Elder law lawyers can also help families intervene if a guardianship or conservatorship is necessary. And personal injury law firms with experience in elder issues can help victims of elder abuse and nursing abuse take civil and criminal legal actions against their abusers.
