My mother is 62 and lives in Washington State. My sister, who is currently a criminal//drug user is her power of attorney over healthcare. My mom is pretty much confined to a small room and unable to physically get up on her own and take care of self. Mom is very thin and from other family members who have seen her said, she looks dehydrated and very sick. My mom has been an alcoholic for years and may have liver disease.
When I try to call and check on her, she is very angry and seems in-coherent most of the time. Her and I have never gotten along very well with so much verbal abuse and dysfunction with the alcoholism. I just need to make sure she is not dying there in that room.
My sister is always gone and leaves her boyfriend, kids and other friends at house while she "runs errands" drug dealing all day. My mom is in diapers now and has bedsores and no appetite. I feel she is being seriously neglected. Is there any advice you can give me to try and get her help.
I am not comfortable going there because my mom is very angry with me and will not compromise or agree to anything I want to do to help her.
