To whom it may concern,
I live in a 800 sq ft two bed room apartment in one of the most expensive cities in the world to live, Vancouver. The rent is $2100 per month and we had to converter our real estate office into a bed room for my mother when she moved in with us 19 month ago. My mother has no assets or retirement savings and her total income is $1419 per month. My sister occasionally takes my mother and we have been giving her $45 per day, we now feel this is unfair to us, we believe the split should be as follows:
$1419 - $700 my mother portion of the rent leaving $719 divided this amount by 30 days you end up with $23.96
We have offered my sister $25 per day for food. My sister feels this is unfair.
My question: How do other families deal with a situation like this.
I have my mother Power of Attorney because of her advanced Alzheimer's
Look forward to your reply
