My Mom is verbally abusive and will not agree to anything I suggest. I sold all my belongings and moved here, with my granddaughter, from out of state, to help her. I have nothing of my own any longer, and living with her has become an absolute hell. She needs help but refuses to let anyone help her. She has become extremely mean and no one wants to be near her, although they know she needs help. I have a sister, but she refuses to help. Actually she is on public assistance and would be unable to help anyway. I am at wits end, and don't know which way to go.

That makes you responsible for her, just like a child, and she cannot make any more legal decisions. If you waste her money, you can be sued by your sister or the Court. Measure twice cut once.
