My mother repeatedly asks my husband and I to allow her to contribute to our household expenses (she lives with us and I am her fulltime caretaker) I dont know how to do this. I have tried before and my siblings accuse me of stealing from her accounts. I am between a rock and a hard place. I dont want to get paid for taking care of my mother , but on the other hand I would like help with some of the house hold expenses, she at present does not pay rent or utilities . My siblings are so concerned that the money she does have will be gone before they can get their hands on it. So what can I do legally (to protect myself ) to allow mom to pay her share while she is in my home and also keep my siblings from saying I'm stealing from mom?
