Yes, the local Area On Aging is a great place to start. Her finances will be an issues, as well, if they are low, then they will guide you on options avalable in your state. Is she of sound mind, and does she have POA's in tact?, get hold of a local Elder care attorney, so they can guide you on the process. That being said, you may have a difficult time talking on her behalf without such papers in place. I know when I did my mother's I had a second person on the papers, in case I became incapable. One who would do well in her best interest. I have a neice, who now is a Dr. This person can also help with needs, and you can work as a team. I wish you well, and use all the recources you can, so both of you can have peace of mind.
