never visits my mom; blew her life insurance policy by not repaying the loan that he borrowed when she began "unable to manage the checkbook"; i saw him other day he never asked once about my mom; family business posted on facebook; i had to petition court for incompetency; I hate him because my mom loved him;


It is very sad that your brother is an alcoholic and that he doesn't seem to care about your mother.

It is sad that you have had to shoulder the responsibility for finding care for your mother. It is very sad that she has dementia.

Do you have a specific question or topic you'd like to get some input about?
Just saw your post. I can relate, similar thing happened with my own brother who is 12 1/2 yrs my senior. If you need to talk further about it, you can email me directly
