Will the government or state take my house if I go into a nursing home?
This is known as "Medicaid Estate Recovery". In most states ... Unlike Florida ... It is possible that Medicaid, after you died, could file a lien against your home. It is extremely important to meet with a qualified elder law attorney, in order to make sure that your home is not at risk of being taken by a Medicaid lien, if you received Medicaid during your lifetime.
