Assisted Living

Mother just got out of rehab after having two toes removed. She is at her house which is ADA equipped. However, she said she now wants to go to assisted living. I am all for it if it makes her happy, but I believe that she will get all set up to go and lose her home and then not like it.

She is in a fantasy land, and not thinking through. However, I am so drained and stressed in dealing with her and my Mother In Law, and my aunt's probate, so I told her to go on. I wonder if the fact that she will lose her home is like trading my birthright for a bowl of soup, but I truly don't know what to do.

I've tried to talk and reason with her, but she lives in her own fantasy world and nothing I say is even acknowledged. I am nothing if she doesn't need immediate help. Yet she wants to say that she is doing it for me. That is a bunch of baloney. I can't even tell the story it is so bad. I hope everyone here finds the help they need.
