Mom moved into assisted living in Aug. At the time she seemed ok with selling her her house. After she had been there a month, she told me I did not have permission to sell. I know she would like to live in her own home, but she needs more care than I can give living in a different state. I have POA and could sell the house, but it feel wrong to do it without her permission, but it also seems silly to pay for an empty house and have the responsibility of its' upkeep. I know selling is the right thing to do do, but I'm afraid telling her will get her really upset and she is finally making peace with being at the AL. She has short term memory loss from a stroke, she might not remember that I told her ( or that she won't forget).
