OK....where do I begin? I will try to keep this as short as possible. Last week, my wife's father passed away. My wife has 2 other sisters. One lives in FL where her Mom still is and one is in CA. They are all there in FL right now trying to figure out what do do with their Mom and he is where the HUGE problem is. Thier Mom has lost it mentally for a few month's now and isn't able to live without someone babysitting her 24/7. One of my wife's sisters has been living with her at her house for about 3 months and she can't handle it anymore and says "I'm done". My wife has been trying to watch her the past week, but it has become too much of a burden and my wife is going insane and we don't know what to do. She can't sleep and her Mom is constantly driving her crazy because she is pretty much insane and can't be spoken too logically. I can't even go into all the things she does to drive my wife crazy, but my wife calls me several times a day and she is crying...literally sobbing uncontrollably, because she can't deal with it anymore. She can't sleep and she can't stand staying in the house where her Dad just was before he died. There are memories of him everywhere. Her sister's think that she has to "put in her time" now and suffer through it, because they each took turns watching their mother and now they think my wife has to go through it. In the meantime, they are trying to figure out what to do with their Mom....put her in a retirement home or in the meanwhile get someone to come watch her and live with her at her house. The other problem is that some of these places have waiting lists and their Mom is aware that her kids are wanting to put her in a home and she resents it and says she won't go. This whole situation is a nightmare beyond belief. The 3 sisters cannot agree on a plan for the Mom and nothing seems to be getting done and my wife is slowly crumbling as each passing day goes by. I am very worried about her and cannot think about anything else other that what's going on down there. The other 2 sister's have "power of attorney" over the Mom and my wife feels like she is a prisoner and has no say over her other sisters. So what should we do? I told my wife that if the other sisters won't get something decided soon and won't agree on anything, then she should just come home. I can't stand to hear her been tortured every day and night in that house with her Mom. It is killing me. I want to step in and bring her home but I know it's not my business...but my wife's well-being is my business. My wife wants to hire professional help to help sort out matter with their parents finances and also with the Mom's situation, but the other sisters are in no hurry to decide and want my wife to stay there taking care of the Mom, while they decide what to do with her. The Mom is insane and no normal non-profl person should be forced to stay with her and take care of her at this point. I wouldn't wish this situation on anyone and if anyone has any advice on what we or my wife should do at this point, please please let me know. Thanks.
