Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
Welcome to JustAnswer!As your European Law expert, I am reviewing your question and will try to find a good answer for you.
Thank you for your question. I am very sorry for your situation.
You may wish to consider contacting the Elder Abuse Service. Contacts are here (http://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/birth_family_relationships/problems_in_marriages_and_other_relationships/elder_abuse.html). They may be able to help / mediate the relationship with your sister and your visitation options in a non-conflictual manner.
If you do wish to apply for your Mother to be a Ward of the court, then the answer is yes, of course she can live with you. The nursing home option is considered a secondary alternative. As long as a close relative is available and willing to care for a person, the court will not consider sending her to a nursing home.
I hope my answer was useful and look forward to your rating, which is essential to my activity.
