Mom sold her house last year for $160,000 and she has some stocks, etc. that I know that my brother can get into if he really needs to. I know that the $160,000 won't last that long. In a way, I pray that God takes her to heaven soon but how healthy she is, who knows. If she does start feeling better and can move into an apartment where we are, maybe that would be a good idea? She would be right close to us and we can check on her anytime. My brother is in charge of her finances and I doubt that he would tell me anything. Because he is her financial POA. My brother feels that she is going downhill and I feel that she isn't. Loneliness and depression can make people get dementia or symptoms of dementia. It's going to take her a while for her to get back to close to the way that she was. She was a very outgoing person and always on the go before she moved into the apartment with the garage. My brother and his wife just don't seem to understand that.
