Caring for mom can be more difficult than I ever imagined. I have been caring for my mom since my dad passed away last year. She moved in with me and my family and turned my life upside down. She almost burned the house down by leaving the stove on, flooded the house by leaving faucets on, putting dirty dishes on the clean dish rack to dry, etc. She would also have strange behaviors talking to people that are not there, having weird stories that I or my family cannot comprehend and weird noises she makes as too fend off voices?. I even brought in a priest to bless her and the house but it still continued. I would even take her to church with me every Sunday. It has been a nightmare! She is finally in an assisted living center that can take care of her since being diagnosed with dementia/schizophrenia. I am sort of getting my life back to normal except I have a brother who thinks he is entitled to mom's money. I am the POA and keep telling him all that I do is for the best interest of mom and the money is for her care. I will be selling one of the houses to help pay for her care and to set up her qualifying for Medicaid in a few years. Has anyone had to deal with so much pain, frustration, and anger. I still love my mom no matter what happens but my relationship with my brother has been strained. Shame what money does to people.
