I'm not sure what else to do. My mother (a recent recovering alcoholic who is still Addicted to prescription meds) is the primary caregiver to my dad (stage iv lung cancer with brain metastasis). He has outlived his prognosis of 6 months to 1 year to 5 1/2 years! His quality of life has changed significantly and my mom refuses to cope - she feeds him whatever is easiest or takeout, let's him sleep till noon or later, won't make the effort to cook the healthy meals when all the resources are there (I have help from elder services for food shopping and cleaning) as well food shopping myself. He has been ordered by the doctors not to drive yet she continues to let him time and time and again and gets caught. She's putting his life in jeopardy and I'm at a loss as to what to do. I stayed there for almost 2 months until she basically drove me out and I'm scared for my dads life. What are my rights? I've reported her for elder abuse but that was useless.
