Mom's nursing home & other expenses

$160 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 8 months
In Feb. 2015, in the middle of the night, I discovered Mom had fallen in her bedroom. After spending close to two weeks in the hospital, she was discharged to a nursing home, where she has remained for the past three years.

After draining our bank accounts to almost nothing, we are still in debt to them and still have to turn over her monthly "income." I've explained I can't let our bank accounts go negative because that will open up a whole other set of problems and I pay what I can, when I can. But I still need money to pay other bills.

For her to receive assistance, bank accounts have a maximum limit set by the state, which doesn't allow me to hold anything back.

No other family or friends are willing or able to help. I've been the only one taking care of Mom for the past three years. My sister & her family have abandoned us. They don't call or visit and have lied on multiple occasions to both of us. In short, we're not on speaking terms. No one besides me visits and calls from other family & friends are few & far-between.

I'm struggling to keep up with taking care of Mom but I am falling apart and so is our house/property which are in need of repair & major cleaning.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Donations will be used to pay off the debt to the nursing home, followed by other bills I need to get caught up on, and then house cleaning/repair.

$10,000 - $15,000 estimated needed by end of April 2018.

Thanks for your consideration.
