What can I do about my mother? She has been divorced over 40 years and now is very lonely. She’s 89, does not want to make friends, and I am an only child with medical problems of my own. She constantly wishes she lived near me and there is no way she can afford an apartment in my area. I cannot afford to pay her rent either. She is paranoid schizophrenic and has many physical conditions as well. Her mental illness is controlled with meds. I feel so guilty that I cannot give her a better life but I do all I can to help her. She will not go to assisted living or a nursing home. I’d like to keep her in her section 8 subsidized apartment. Please help.
