I've been told that I am and am not legally liable for my mom's care. I moved into her house two years ago and have been caring for her the best I can, considering I work a full-time job. While there is always food in the house, liquids at the ready, some days she will go without eating and she doesn't like to drink liquids unless she is thirsty, which is a bit on the late side. She no longer drives and is in a state of dementia that it isn't safe for her to Uber or Lyft alone. She spends her day watching political news, rarely does housing cleaning, I've taken on that responsibility when I noticed cobwebs were forming...I realized she wasn't cleaning much any more. I'm the one who does the cooking, now the cleaning, as well as event planning and hosting events fit for mom. Mom refuses to go to any center alone, I managed to get her to go to a local Sr. Ctr. with a friend of hers, so now mom gets out of the house 1-2 times a week during the day with friend.
Since I live in the house and do all the above and more, am I legally liable for her, in the event she falls, wanders off, etc... even though I am not the POA?
