I'm sure this has been asked/answered here, but I was focused on other things. My mom is burning through her savings with 24/7 home care since my dad died last September. (She had a stroke 10 years ago and is in a wheelchair, declining mentally. She's 85). At this rate, we estimate she has a year of savings left. What should my next steps be? I have POA, she owns her own home. The attorney we've been working with (theirs; had to use her to fight for access to my dad's safety deposit box) is about worthless. We're in a very rural area with no elder care attorneys. Do I need one? I'm doing this from 3 hours away. I work 6/7 days a week and travel to my mom's most Sundays. I need to be as efficient with my time as possible. I'm already at the end of my mental rope fighting to gain her access to her investments.
