Question: My mother is in a nursing home, and I pay for the entire cost. Can I deduct the expenses?

Answer: Nursing home expenses are allowable as medical expenses in certain instances. They are treated as medical expenses, and they are deducted as such on Schedule A.

If you, your spouse, or your dependent is in a nursing home, and the primary reason for being there is for medical care, the entire cost, including meals and lodging, is a deductible medical expense.

If the individual is in the home mainly for personal reasons, then only the cost of the actual medical care is a deductible medical expense, and the cost of the meals and lodging is not deductible.
