Here are facts: Mother has Moderate Dementia Father is Primary Caregiver and active alcoholic deeply resentful of caregiving I am an only child, due to have my first baby in 2 months with high risk pregnancy and live thousands of miles away. My mother has worshipped her family her whole life and they, in return, want nothing to do with her. Nonetheless, after I scheduled long distance a cognitive evaluation last year (my dad had not taken her to a doctor in 3 years) my dad flipped out on hearing that the memory issue was only going to get worse. Packed them up and moved them to the middle of nowhere in a home to be "near her family" who they have, after one year, barely seen at all, which is no surprise to me. The only family member who shows interest is really after my mothers possesions, and my father who would anyone at all to relieve him of taking care of my mother is more than happy to have her involved. So, now I am 7 months pregnant and I am informed that my father plans to "get rid of all the junk" in our family home, sell it, and move with my mother permanently to the middle of nowhere, near toxic family. Geographically alone it will be almost impossible to visit, psychologically it will be dangerous for me as well. I have tried every solution, homes near me, letting him know there is plenty of caretaking where they currently live, on and on. It doesn't matter, he wants to do what he wants to do. He hasn't even taken her to have a formal evaluation, only to a GP but that was enough for him. He also has done NOTHING to protect me or my mother if something God Forbid happen to him, not even HIPAA. Should I get a lawyer here to help me? I am at a loss and so depressed and so angry that I want to feel the joy of having my first baby and all this is happening. And I feel mostly terribly scared and depressed and helpless. No one in my immediate friends or family seem to have any advice they are at a loss.
