My mom has been living by herself many states away and we're moving her home. Over the last few years we've noticed she's been progressively getting forgetful but things have really progressed. Her neighbors have been in contact with my brother and me and based on what we're learning I'm doubtful she'll be able to continue to live on her own. Her home is sold and her belongings will be loaded up soon, but we don't have a place for her to move to as of yet. I'm thinking we'll need to store her belongings until we figure out a long-term solution for her and that is where my questions begin. I figure we need to find her doctors and get her assessed first. Second we then need to find the appropriate type of home for her, whatever that might be. Third it would seem we also need to understand what kind of resources there might be for her, i.e. government, etc. She does not have a lot of money and lives pretty much off social security. This is all new to me and I'd like to find a single point of contact who is trustworthy that can guide me through this process. Does anyone have recommendations? I'm not sure if I should go through an elder care attorney or a government agency. I'm concerned the former will have his or her interests first while the latter I worry about competence. Thank you for any input anyone can provide.
