My mother has always been a miserable women. Since my father passed away 17 years ago she has house surfed everyone she knows and has burnt all bridges no one wants anything to do with her. Imposing in my life and home every time she ran out of money or was asked to leave I'd say a total of 14 out of the last 17 years.She now has dementia and her meaness has gotten worse and has made life miserable for me and my 17 yr old daughter to the point we dont want to live in our own house. I have reached out to the local services here in Syracuse NY for help and resources but since she is independent as far as dressing and feeding herself I was told she is not a candidate for a NH. However, she scored to low cognetively for a medicaid assistant living facility. She has no money other than 667.00/ month SS. So I feel I am traped. This is my home and I hate being here. Why is it that no one will help me get my life back. Am I obligated to keep her here and live like this for ever at this rate she might out live me.
