Will I be held responsible if I move out and leave my 80 year old Mom with dementia and other health conditions to live alone, even though she shouldn't be? If something happens will I be legally held responsible for neglect? I have been her in home caregiver for years and I have been in the home buying process for some time now, trying to get other siblings to take charge of Mom. They don't want the responsibility and keep talking about her staying in her own home and them just "checking in" on her every few days. I know it my heart of hearts this isn't right, but I need to live my life for once. Will this be a mistake?
