I am here to get some sound advice or some suggestions..
When Hurricane Sandy hit our area we had to evacuate so I had to take my 89 year old mom and me to a hotel.. My sister stayed behind and wen to a friends. we all live together in one house.. I paid for the hotel for four days.. Now me and my mom are at a friends and she is declining fast. we have been here for two weeks and there is no heat or water or power at our primary house.. Now my sister has always had power of attorney of my mom and I have no paperwork nor no id for her and I dont even have Id for where i was living....
My main concern is that we are in a house with teenagers and if my mom dies here I just dont think that is right. My sister who also takes moms check is not sending me a penny for her meds or food and I dont have that kind of monye right now. I live on a very small fixed income and for me every penny counts as Suzie Orman says.. I can fill out the fema papers but that could take awhile and there are hundreds of thousands of people before me..My sister iskeeping my moms check and that isnt right when I need some money here..
I have no idea what to do?I told my sister to come here and we can take mom to rehab until this all blows over or whatever. she wont help at all and I have no idea what to do. I am stuck with my mom all day and everyday and I have no respite and I am not in the great of health either..
what do I do??
