My Mom came to live with me after my Dad passed and was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I have a full time job (10 hrs per day-5 days) and we needed the income. I am single. This caregiver would send the bills in batches, several months at a time, usually $3000.00 - $4,000.00, and expected to be paid the full amount immediately. My Mom had to be moved to a nursing home and her caregiver left for an extended stay in the Phillipines, sending another batch of bills that were not correct. I sent her my questions/concerns and didn't hear back until a month ago, the week after my Mom passed. Her funeral expenses were over $11,000.00. She had no life ins., or money left so my brother and I had to come up with the money. Am I responsible for the bills from my Moms caregiver and if so, am I able to make payments? The bills are over $5,000.00 that I just don't have. Some have told me that I'm not and others that I am. I would be grateful for any knowledgeable advice.
