Deduct Nursing Home Medical Expenses

by Kenneth Hoffman in ,

You can deduct as medical expenses the cost of medical care in a nursing home, home for the aged, or similar institution, for you, your spouse or dependents. This includes the cost of meals and lodging in the home if a principal reason for being there is for medical care. If the reason for being in the home is personal, you can't include the cost of meals and lodging, but you can deduct the part of the cost that is for medical or nursing care.
