My brother and I both live in Seattle, our aging mother, diagnosed with Alzheimer's, lives in Cleveland. Is it legal to use money from her estate to pay for flights and to reimburse for missed work to visit her? Visit are used to spend time with her but also to check up on caretakers and begin preperations for an eventual transition out of her house. My brother can work remotely, I can't and have no paid time off. We don't want to do anything unscrupulous but it is costly to care for a parent long distance. I am very grateful for free cellular long distance calls. Would appreciate any information. Thanks so much.
