My mother lives with my husband and I in our home. My husband and I are both unemployed. We are living off of our retirement funds. We rent out a room to a roommate who is paying 600.00 a month with rent increases every year. He provides his own food. Mom is paying 500.00 a month and she refuses to pay any more. We supply her food, cook her meals, we take her to and from her doctor appointments, I do all her laundry and put it away for her, She does not qualify for medicaid because she keeps giving money away to her grand daughter who doesn't even thank her for it and in my opinion is taking advantage of her grand mother. After utilities are taken out of the 500.00 mom pays, and the groceries and the gas for transportation her rent is around 2 to 3 hundred a month. My husband plans on going back to work but I need to stay home with my mom. How can I convince my mother that she needs to be helping out more. She clears over 1100.00 a month .
