My mom is advancing in Dementia. My sister is the primary caregiver and I (son) help out whenever I can. We have 3 other siblings, one is mentally disabled and the other two help only when asked.
My sister is single, but is on the verge of collapsing from fatigue and frustration. I step in but it takes a toll on my wife, children, and grandchildren. We feel she is more than we can handle and would like to try to put her in a care home. None of my siblings can help me pay for the horrendous costs of care homes. They give a thousand excuses but that's another story. The other two siblings always give excuses when we call for family forum but again, that's another story.
My mom probably qualifies for Medicaid as she has no or very little assets, way below the minimum for Medicaid. We are hoping if my mom qualifies, can a daughter or son put her in a care home without POA.
Thank you for any help.
