Sibling

by Lisa
(North Carolina )

I relocated to NC and brought my elderly mother along 4 years ago. I had 2 siblings back home but they wouldn't help my mother and this was the reason I brought her along.


My mother is now 86 years old and I have become disabled and can no longer care for her.I have a total of 6 siblings who will do nothing for her. I have been trying to get her into a nursing home and they are running me around in circles.

I am hurt, angry,frustrated that none of them will help. Two of my siblings own their own homes and still refuse to help or take her in. Can I sue them to take over her care since I am disabled and can no longer care for her?

The next time your mom goes into the hospital, tell the social worker that you want to place her in a nursing home. Tell her of your disability. The hospital will provide you with a list of places. Because your mum is in the hospital, she will become priority for a nursing home.
