Have cared for aging parent in our home for 20 years. We built separate apartment for parent and she contributed to the monthly costs. My Sister, who is RN, is the POA and holds all financial accounts, and has only provided some help (grocery shopping and doctors visits) over last couple years from the 20 parent was with us.
Now parent getting dementia, and sister decided to step in to help and has decided to move parent from apartment to their home for closer care. Within a couple of months, sister realized how hard it is to deal with care and wants to now split the care evenly 50/50.
(We currently have parent 25-30% of the time, which was agreement). We get no financial compensation and sister does not feel we should get any compensation.
We do not have any real control of anything, thus we don't feel we have to take back care 50/50 since we had been giving 100% care over last 20 years. We would like to have some feedback on this. Thanks,
