My father allowed my mother to live in his home after her husband died and her house burned to the ground. My mother has lived with me many times over the years. We have learned we CANNOT live together. She has to smoke outside and has almost burnt my homes down twice.
My father is worsening by the day. He did not save much and all he has is his house and his little bit of savings. This would all be gone quickly if he is placed in a nursing home.
The doctors are telling me that "I" need to place him there for my own good. I agree with them. He didn't need me for 50 years, but now I'm doing my best to take care of him when he asked for help.
If I do this, then my mother will require a place to live when he passes. She has never cared for me and rejects everything I say and try to do for her, even though I've taken her in so many times that I can no longer count them.
What options would I have for her once my father passes? What would she qualify for? She has 2 mental disorders and has nothing to her own name. I really need some guidance. I'm in the state of GA
