Assisted Living has been discussed with my 86 year old mother. She cannot walk unassisted without falling (may be polio coming back again) and she is losing her memory. I'm ready to put her in, she is disrupting my home soooo bad. My sister-in-law kicked her out because mom was to demanding. Well mom wasn't, I visited everyday and my sister-in-law was MEAN to mom, made her sit all day in a hard dinning room chair. No TV, nothing to do but look at the window. I have her sitting in a lift chair in front of the best view in our place, TV, puzzles, knitting, phone, anything she needs. But she's driving me crazy not remembering that this is my home. Anyway, she does not want to spend any of her money on a nursing home or anyplace. All her friends went in and didn't pay a dime. I can't convince her that her friends had nothing (I'd like to tell her -- remember that's why you didn't want to be seen with them cause they looked poor). She thinks all her money and "things" should go to us kids. I don't want anything, I have more money than she and my brothers have ever had. So how do I handle this? How can I get her on Medicaid so she can be happy and get it paid for?
