My mother has early stage dementia and my sister lives with her and she is a hoarder. There are plastice bags and clutter everywhere. The house is filthy. There is no food, no clean clothes, and my mother is alone 12 hours a day while my sister is at work. My sister is using my mother's money to pay bills and then keeping what is left over. My sister refuses to pay for things my mother needs. APS told my sister my mother needs socialization and the health department says there are no blocked exits and working smoke detector so they closed the case. I do not have the money to seek guardianship. I am taking my mother to see a gerontologist and I will report what is going on. I am hoping the doctor will report this situation to APS again and maybe they will do something. Is there anything else I can do? Has anyone else had this situation?
