I moved from south Carolina 6 yrars ago to take care of her. I had to quit my job here in Louisville ky to take care of her. We were surviving on her ss check. My question is can I keep paying for utilities and other essentials from her checking account? I have an 8 ur old son also. I don't want to cause more headaches for myself then I've already had. It's been a real experience caring for my mom!
