Read this quote in one of the forums and realized that some of the problems stemming from elder cargiving may be due to a future inheritence. I keep wondering why all these caregivers are willing to go through with all the horrors of caring for undeserving elderly relatives. My mother is basically trying to do that with her four heirs; me, my two sisters and a usless lazy stepsister. The stepsister is the only one concerned about her due rights inheritence. My sisters and I could care less. Me and one of my sisters are the only ones that have been able to help her and not because of the inheritence. I know I will never take on the care of my elderly mother until she uses all that blood money first for her care. I will not be held hostage to an inheritence!
