What to do with mom's house and bills since I put her into a nursing home?
My mom owns her home. In her will she left it to me and my little sister. She has older kids as well from another marriage. She is in bad shape and I am her power of attorney and had no choice but to place her into a nursing home. I'm overwhelmed with it all and want to throw in the towel with everything financially. I have no issues with taking care of her stuff health wise. Right now I am 7 months pregnant. I have no money to pay her utilities or her loans she has. She was kind of careless and got behind on bills and house taxes and her loans. She is getting letters now thteatening legal action for her car payments. I need to give the car back. But I don't know what to do with this house. Honestly I don't think it's worth much. It's old and needs alot of work. Utilities are eventually gonna get shut off. I was paying her bills with her social security. But she doesn't get Medicaid and Medicare won't cover nursing. She cannot be home. So I'm using her whole social security check to pay for her nursing facility along with us kids pitching an extra 100 a month to afford it. Legally I dont know what to do. Its causing me so much anxiety. I dont want any responsibility for her house and bills. I'm not even in the position right now to clean her house out or have the time to sell her home (if it's even legal). I've never dealt with anything like this before. I'm overwhelmed. If I could just clean out her house and leave it to be condemned I would. Nobody in the family wants it. With winter being here the pipes are gonna burst. Someone please point me in the right direction :( I dont want to get in trouble for anything for being POA. I dont want it affecting my credit. I have a family of my own. I just want to throw in the towel and run away. My little sister is secondary POA and she is only 21 so I don't think she could handle all this either. I have bad depression and anxiety as it is and I can't even enjoy my pregnancy. I'm still grasping the fact my mom is dying and may not meet this baby and I wanna focus on myself and her. I could care less about her house or the bills I can't pay anyways. I feel trapped.
