Visitation

by Sharon
(Raleigh NC)

My mom is 98 years old. She started going down about 2 years ago. Her living situation at her house (stairs, no bathroom downstairs, unable to fix her meals, clothe herself without assistance). I guess the short of it is she can no longer live alone.


There are 7 living children. she is currently with one brother and as been for about 2 months. He will not let anyone speak to her on the phone or wave from a distance for obvious reasons.

What can I do..I need to know that she is ok. Knowing that he is my brother does not make me feel like I should assume she's ok.

I want to request a welfare check, however, I understand I can't go or meet them there. I don't to scare her but I know she does not understand why she cannot speak to any of children. She is 98 but her mind is not gone.

What can I do?

Might have to get some legal help

Ask your brother to do a FaceTime chat with all of you. That way you can see her at the very least. If your brother is refusing to let you know what’s going on your only recourse may be to get help from elder protective services.

Does your brother have power of attorney or any kind of guardianship for your mom?
