Adding Elderly Parent to Deed

My wife and I are buying a new house. We are bringing in her Mother with us (she will have her own space downstairs, bathroom and all that). My wife want's to put her on the deed to the house. I have no idea why, I don't really see the benafit of putting her on it.

My mother in law is on SSDI, does not work...in her 70's, rebuilt hip, on meds for heart condition...

So, my fear is...lets say some years down the road, she requires a nursing home or something. If her name is on the deed to OUR house, could they technically come after the house to pay for her care?
