I cannot continue to allow my mother to live in this house, it is in my backyard. She has schizo-effective disorder. She is a liability. I cannot afford to insure this house with her living in it.She has a reasonable income. Her aging and illness has become too much for me. I have no able siblings. I do not want POA. I have tried to find community services to help. She has repeatedly called the sheriff to report my wrongdoings. (imagined or justifiable) she is not handling her finances properly. She abandoned her own house, stopped paying the mortgage,taxes,insurance and upkeep. I have given up, her illness will not allow me to help and it has taken it's toll on me. I have half the income as she does, on disability, no food stamps, my car is not running, and I need the income I could receive by renting the house. She has been going to church begging for money and to neighbors for food. Since she doesn't pay her bills and is begging for food, I can only assume she is spending her money on her insatiable nicotine addiction. I cannnot afford any expense for an elder attorney. I live in TN.
