I live in NY state. My mom is 74 yrs old and seems to be experiencing some dementia. She began "loosing" it when my brother passed away in 2003. I've invited her to stay with me in my home and since Aug 1 of this year she was living with me but she never stays here. I am in the process of getting her an apt of her own in a senior developement due to the fact that she doesn't think my husband and I want her with us. I am at my wits end trying to figure out what to do. There are other circumstances that I feel require me to take guardianship of her. I know there is a fee to process this in court one I really can't afford. Please advise. Thank you. PS I have an older bro and younger sister who agree.
