Do you and your mom live together?

Who are the 'many people' who expect you to be her caregiver and expect her to stop helping you financially? Are these people family? Friends?

At her age, if you are living together, it would seem to make sense that you would be her caregiver. How do you feel about being her caregiver? Does she need a caregiver since you live in a senior living community?
