How do you deal with difficult family inolved in the care of our mother?
My mom recently moved into my home with my husband and myself. My remaining brother and 4 sisters were dead set against this move. My mother is in fair health which she requires many trips to many different doctors. she lived in a senior high rise/low income apartment complex. She had no home to sell or car and what belongings she had were in a one bedroom apt. She offered my siblings to take what they wanted but they chose very little and refused to help move. They have not spoken to my mom or me in 3 months. My mom has her own phone line and they have the number no calls or cards for mothers day either. they say i am just after her money. There really isn't any but her social security. She does have a few credit cards. I must add now my mom's body might be failing her but she has her mind. They hired an attorney to try and get her to hand over copy of all her statements. She went to her attorney and he wrote them a letter on her behalf and gave them what we thought was what they wanted. Yesterday they sent a certified letter to my mom written by one of them on behalf of all of them. But once again it was only about her finances and what i was doing with her money. I swear there is no money except this s.s. income. Once again not one word asking how she was doing and how she was feeling and was i taking care fo all her medical needs. This is certainly harder than I thought it was going to be. There solution was to stay in that apt. or nursing home. I just can't do that yet. How do I handle this? Will this go on forever?
