nursing home

My mother need to be placed in a nursing home, or come live with us. She refuses. If she continues to live alone, she is in danger-she is 84.
She is squandering away finaces and cannot care for herself. How can I get her the much needed help? No nurses want to deal with her-she is difficult and has dementia.
We are out of state- but would like to start this process?
Any help is appreciated.

Contact a lawyer. You will need to get yourself appointed by the court to be her guardian. Also contact your State’s senior service office.

Best advice. Been through this twice.
God bless.
