Caring long distance for my 86 year old mother has become very challenging as she has aged and I need to know what rights a child has. She had to borrow a walker for her last appointment. We have been begging her to move in with us or at least near us for years but she refuses. It has come to a point where we will have to take more drastic steps for her own protection. She has macular degeneration so her eyesight is extremely poor. She has congestive heart failure and misses many of her appointments. She is tired and exhausted all of the time. Though she does occasionally get confused she does have her mind but has difficulty doing her bills and remembering if she has taken her medicine. What can we do ? Can we get a court order and make her come with us or have her placed in a nursing home ? She recently has been put on oxygen and I am afraid she will not remember how to use it !!!
