Re: Moved in with Mom

More info... I am now in the process of getting our legal arrangements in order. So far, my cousins are not stepping in for their mom, and my Mom is 80, so do not want her to end up primary care giver, which will fall to me and far as I know, I have no legal standing as such. Any advice or experience is welcomed. More to come...

Hi, I am 57 and just moved in with my Mom, who's 80 and my aunt, who's 78. My aunt just fell so it's getting interesting now. Stay tuned!
