Before my mom become Ill she had a quick marriage to a man I don’t know very well and I don’t trust him. Knowing that she is showing signs of not remembering things and seems unable to care for herself, how do I step in and try and care for her?
I’d ask my Mom if I could see her will and other documents that reference her care. I’d also approach her husband to get to know him better and talk with him about what role he would like to take in her care and what role you can play. If this were my Mom, I’d be suspicious as you sound. (It’s a good idea to discuss this with a lawyer even if you think that he can be trusted.) I’d also go speak with her doctor if you’re seeing she’s becoming physically dependent and needing care.
Joy, ouch, now thats a problem I have not had to face. On top of worrying about your Moms health you have this new husband. Barbara had great advice, make sure Elder Care lawyer they know more about laws that affect the aging public. Maybe a private detective to check out the new husband. Have you googled him you might find other people who know him, exwife?? I totally understand your concern and I would do all of the above. best of luck
