As my mom's POA, can I legally have her name removed from the mortgage and just have my name in place of hers?

Question Details: My mom has dementia and I am her POA. I did a legal process with her tenant and she now holds the mortgage in name only via me as her POA until it is paid off over the next several years. It is now an asset but now she needs nursing home level of care from assisted living and private pay is too high. I'm trying to get her Medicaid but the home as her asset will make her ineligible, most likely.
