Re: not getting any help from fmily members with mom having problems with POA

Hello @ab68459945 :  Thank you for reaching out, and I'm sorry to hear that it's been a rough go of it for you. 

 

Family dynamics can be so difficult.  It's not uncommon for one person (or a small few people) to do all the heavy lifting.  Are the unhelpful family members nearby and physically/mentally/emotionally competent to pitch in?  If so, then let's talk about ways to circle the wagons to best help your mom (and you!).

 

Can you give us a bit more detail about the problems you're encountering with power of attorney?  Perhaps we can brainstorm some solutions together.   

 

Thanks, and take care!

Amanda Singleton

I’m sorry. I know it’s really rough.

 

Is there a department of aging in your state? They often provide guidance in those situations.

 

Is it financial help you need? Or physical help? Is your mom (or you) a member of a church or other community or faith group? Often they will help.
