There are a few things I think my mom screwed up with her small town attorney. Everyone keeps telling me I need an Elder Law attorney but I'm having trouble finding one in my state. I really don't want to have to drive 500 miles to the attorney's office. Also, I am currently living with my mom as she needs 24hr care. Her furnace broke, it wasn't repairable as it was installed back in the 50's and she couldn't afford a new one, so I took $2,000 out of my own bank account for the down payment, now I'm broke. I won't be saving much for the next few months as I will have to make several $500 monthly payments.
I may have been wrong to authorize modifications to her house for the new furnace, but we are getting temperatures of -12 and my mom is 96 years old, so she can't be without heat in the house.
