Taking care of mom with dementia.
Six weeks ago my two sisters and I , along with her doctor.decided that our mother should not drive or live alone. I am the middle sister, my older sister is POA and lives eight hours away. Our mother owes on her house, so we know if she sales it there is only enough money for assisted living for a year. My sister suggested that if my husband and I were financially able for me to quit a great paying job and take care of mom, we could sell all her belongings to pay off some of our bills . My husband also has a great paying job, so we agreed, because my litttle sister said she couldn't do it. We are still waiting for test results coming back this week. I have taken a family medical leave but dont think mom will be able to go back to living alone. If she don't sell her house she can't afford in home care. I would like suggestions about emotions and legal advice. I just don't want hard feelings in our family or I am afraid of after a several years will my mother love me as a daughter or despite me as a caregiver, also we take her where she wants to go on weekends to make her happy, but I have no time for my kids or grandkids unless they come here.
