Hello, I live in California and my mom gets money from her annuity and Social Security but was wondering what would be more affordable a live in or Assisted Living? She is very difficult and is verbally abusive she can barely walk and falls a lot she is too heavy for me to lift when she falls . She lives in my nephews house and refuses to pay rent so she can save money for her own place so he has to sell his place . She went to go see if she can qualify for a mobile home because a house is to expensive but she needs more income so my boyfriend was willing to co-sign for her but she is now saying, he can't live there because a friend is going to take care of her ? This women has no friends and family has turned their backs on her because of her behavior even though she is mean I still try to help because she is my mother but now I have to look after myself and now she is upset saying her kids should take care of her and how she hopes we go through the same thing! I agree it sucks getting old but how can anyone help if the person is difficult and threatens you and wants everything their way ! Only thing I can think of is a professional caretaker or assistant living and don't know what the cost of that would be?
