What steps do I need to begin to take to find her a home? My mother will need to go into an old folks home, as I see her continuing to deteriorate mentally. Most likely in the next 2 -3 years. She has dementia and other mental health issues and the abuse that comes along with it that I simply cannot manage. She is 70. She does not have a social worker (we live in a rural part of Tennessee so that has its own unique challenges) and only has her social security. She won't give me power of attorney, medical power attorney or the like. While she is very nasty and aggressive, I still want to ensure that she has a safe comfortable place to live. I do not have the funds to support her. She lives with us now, but as her dementia and other mental health issues escalate to violent outbursts, its clear she will need to go somewhere. In state, out of state whatever my options might be. Can anyone tell me what steps I need to take to find her a decent place on her very limited income? She is not going to go peacefully, so its something that I am assuming responsibility for.
