You don't HAVE to tend to his family, let him and the OW do it.

Keeping responsibility for his relatives is holding you back. Why should you have his mother live with you when he is perfectly capable. If he isn't helping raise his child, why should you be helping care for his mother? Single parenting is not easy. My hat goes off to you for your strength in leaving a cheater. Being a single parent myself for 20 something years I believe you have the fortitude to lead a healthy lifestyle for yourself and your child. But you need to start by distancing yourself from his family because it seems they are more burden to you
