My mother is 58 going on 59. She was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's because of recent traits she has been displaying (I.E being later then normal for things, forgetting the little things like her keys, cell phone and getting frustrated and mad, getting lost in same town that she has lived in all her life).
I live 1500+ miles away from her and I have a sister who lives 2 miles away. My sister wants me to give up everything, including my partner and job, here in Seattle and move home to So Dakota to take care of my mother. Why does she think this is fair? Should I? Is it a fair compramise to have my sister take care of my mother and me handle the legal/Finicial aspects of this for her?
Also what can I do to prepare myself with this? I have never known anyone with Alzheimer's.
