My mom is 59 and currently lives alone. She is fully disabled and lives off of a disability check that barely covers her bills. We've gone through her bills and she is now bare bones bills wise, but still runs out of money each month. She has a condition that affects her brain function and has largely taken care of it in the past but this last year it has gotten bad enough that she has wrecked her car twice, got eviction notices for forgetting to pay rent, had her electric shut off and more.
She can't handle her own finances, take care of her apartment or health and is constantly depressed. She hides things from me because she is embarrassed or afraid of what will happen.
How can I make sure her finances are handled, she has groceries and she is taking care of her health? She can't move in with me, my wife and I are both full time students and work and we are only in our mid twenties. On top of that, my wife is a nurse and it is 100% not fair to ask my wife to come home from a 13 hr shift and help take care of someone. Not to mention we live in the second story and my mom can barely get up stairs.
I'm starting to get extremely worried and overwhelmed with this and don't know what to do. It's interfering with my school, work, etc.
