This Week's Carenote - 06/18/13

 

My mom has some health problems and doesn't want to go into a nursing home. I have been running back and forth between her home and mine, doing everything for her (cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc.) Last April, when she came home from rehab in a wheelchair, I spent 45 days with her. She then got pneumonia and went back in the hospital and then to rehab again. She is still there. I am thinking about selling both our homes to buy one more suitable to my taking care of her. My question is, if she does require long-term care in the future, will the house be safe? Thank you for any advice. We are looking to purchase in Pennsylvania, if that makes any difference.

Donna
