How does the caregiver not get stuck supporting the parent financially by themselves? My questions is this...I've been taking care of my mother in my home, for four years now. Her money is just about gone with the exception of social security and a small pension, which definitely won't pay her monthly bills. The only thing she has left, is her house, which I would like to keep as a vacation home. Obviously, I would have to buy out my half from my sibling. But until her death, I will be supporting her financially for her care. I would like to have the money that I am using to support her, be deducted from my half of the house owed to my sibling, when she dies. How do we go about writing that? Does it go in the will? Even if the house wasn't a factor, I shouldn't have to completely support her on my own. Advice please.
