Mom is 95, in fair health but blind and in a wheelchair. My two sisters and I have had her stay in our homes (a month at time) for the last two years. Maintaining (her) empty house was no longer wise and we are selling it. Any proceeds would be banked pending possible future health needs like nursing home etc. We have only taken $100 a week so far for compensation and that went for her needs first, occasional lunch out etc. After her home sells and house-related expenditures are finished, can we give ourselves a "raise" and use her soc security check as needed after her care expenses are met?
