What do you mean she's 'forced'? I always think of someone who's being 'forced' to do something, is someone that's having a gun held to their head.
Taking care of a 84 with incontent issues when you're 70 is a very difficult task. If finances are an issue have you looked into medicaid assistance? Many facilities accept medicaid and provide very good care.
