i need time for me, mom won't go along with respite (dr. suggested location). Mom wants inappropriate relatives instead. These people are not dependable, that's why we'd like two weeks of year for her in respite so we can take vacation to see our kids in another state. We live in FL winters. Mom has her place we have ours. We bought our condo so we could be nearby. I don't mind having her in FL and part of summer, but not all the time. We take care of all her needs, including being at her place overnight when ill, afraid, etc. We drive her everywhere all the time. For summers we care for mom in our home. Her health is failing, she is becoming difficult and demanding. My sister is poa and exec of the estate and will not take care of mom. I'm getting angry that I care for her and she won't help be for two weeks by going into respite so I can have a decent respite for me. We are arguing, I finally told her to shut up! I don't deserve her carrying on about her wishes that won't work and will ruin our plans when her people back out (This has happened before a number of times). My husband has interceded for me so at least I have that. My sister,POA and exec, has been a real jerk. I want to know if I can put mom into respite without mom or sisters input. Sister will not take her, mom doesn't want to go.
