Mom is getting intent to foreclose notices, banking is a hot mess, no money, she does not understand. She is pending neuropsych testing for formal diagnosis but she is obviously suffering with dementia. Her house is in poor repair, everything on its last leg with some hoarding. My head injured brother also lives with her and has hoarded his room and a shed in the yard. She can not afford her mortgage and heloc having gone through everything. She also has over 10K in cc debt, maybe more.
So the house needs to be sold ASAP and my realtor says she really needs the house unoccupied for a quick sale. She feels it would be very distressing to my mom (realtor was a RN for many years so sees it from that perspective as well).
So my question is is there anything her doctor could do to place her temporarily so I can do what needs to be done? Doctor is doing a home visit tomorrow and I'm wanting to discuss the situation with her but hoping for some first hand experiences here.
I do not have POA as she has NO money to hire an Elder attorney. She very much wants me to have POA so its just a matter of finding a free resource to help get it done. I live 500 miles away in another state and need to get back soon for my monthly chemo infusion.
