Good morning. I am sorry to hear about your mother? Is she of sound mind? Even though she is sick, is she alert and aware of the situation?
Hi, are you still with me?
Great to hear back from you. If your mother is of sound mind and capable of knowing what is happening, you can obtain power of attorney over her and act on her behalf, making certain legal decisions. Now, as far as her living situation, she would ideally be willing to relocate to you in AL. If not, then you would need to proceed through the court and become her guardian and allowed to take her and have her live with you. Another option would be to being in a nurse or aid to help her during the day or at nights. However, the key is proving she is not capable of caring for herself and making decision and as a result, needs someone to act on her behalf.
