My mother is currently in a nursing home, I moved here from Wi Sept 2010 to take care of her 24/7 for 2 years ,unable to use arms or legs , but still very sharp long term memory , short term is gone :( I am her MPOA with durable per visions ,financial ect. I am 54 and decided to go back to school Jan 2012 online while I was home with her and doing my 16 hour shifts. I sat in my mom's room on recliner and we interacted ,took her to church ect. My best friend... I said to my mother that there was no room for advancement for me in the valley. I brought her to Austin. She is now in nursing home. See her every other day and bring her to my apartment every other weekend so I spend about 12 days out of the month with her in my apartment :) she loves it. Her house has sat empty for one year and I only work enough to survive on . I have paying water bill, electric some one to mow the grass and gas money to drive 5 hours to go check on house. I cannot afford this any longer !!! My mom is on nursing home Medicaid.
Can I sell the house and roll that money into buying a home here in Austin in her name so I don't have to pay rent and give her a home to come home to with all her belongings in it ? I am the only child and no help from anyone.
I lost everything coming here to help her... and now can only move on and hope that at my age I can find a job when I graduate .
