I asked a question a couple of weeks ago on how to handle my mother's creditors now that she is in a nursing home and starting next month, will no longer be able to pay her credit card bills. Someone (off site) suggested getting a lawyer to do the leg work, write the letters, and deal with them. I have enough to deal with, with my mother's illness and care and I don't want to be bothered...at all, even though I'm POA. I'm at the point of exhaustion and it's affected my health. I was wondering if anyone had done this and what the outcome was. I have heard about how creditors track down and harass family members, and even the sick person in the nursing home, to hound them for money. What I hope to accomplish is for the creditors to not even know that I exist because, frankly, I can't handle one more thing. Anything you can tell me from experience (even second hand experience) will be appreciated.
