What limits or restrictions are there for nursing home or convalence center care deductions? I am not sure if these constitute a medical expense.

If an individual is in a nursing home or a home for the aged because of his physical condition and the availability of medical care is a principal reason for his presence there, the entire cost of maintenance, including meals and lodging is deductible as a medical, schedule A, expense.

RooCat is correct. I had Power of Attorney for my parents and was able to deduct entire cost of nursing home care.
