    I can't say specifically in your case, but generally in cases such as yours, a person owes the nursing facility for the time they have stayed in said facility.

    However, some people paid (or had others pay) the living costs for their stay.

    If you (or someone else) have been paying your expenses, you only owe going forward.

    If you haven't paid the facility, you owe them for the months you've resided on their property.

    The difference should belong solely to you!!!!

    But, before you do anything (or agree to anything), you might wish to speak with a relative you trust or an attorney to make sure you don't get cheated!!!!
