I found this forum while Googling predicaments similar to mine. I am not sure if this site is the right one for me so if after reading this question you think I should post elsewhere, I would definitely welcome it if you had any suggestions where to go.
My 57 year old mother's house burned down last month. It was a grease fire prompted by her leaving a pan on the stove. I live in a different state and tried to help from a distance without immediately taking all responsibility because that has been a problem in the past. She did not have insurance so her living options are limited. However after running into difficulty getting a bed, she refused to live in a shelter and took to living in her car on the property. Last week she was hospitalized from getting into some poisonous wildlife while cutting weeds in the dark around the remains of her house. I think there really is a mental issue but she has no money or healthcare and is now homeless. I can't just move her across the country to a one room apartment with my fiance. She has no close family other than me and my younger brother (19) who also lost everything. If there is any help to be arranged it falls to me. I tried to keep distance but after this hospitalization it appears I have no choice to go down there. Yet I have no idea how to properly aid her. Does anyone have any suggestions?
