This Week's Carenote - 04/26/11
I  cared for my father until he recently passed away. I was the POA for all his decisions.  My sister and I are the executors of his will.  My sister is accusing me of taking my fatherís money.  She claims $35,000 is missing.
 
My father lived within our home with my family.  My sister did nothing, and I mean nothing.   I made sure he had everything he wanted.  I feel I saved us money;  in a nursing home, all the money would be gone by now.
 
I feel so hurt from her allegations after spending five years of my life taking care of him.  I would do it again in a minute.  I loved my father.  I put my life on hold to care of him and my mom.  Mom passed first, then he slowly got worse after her death.
 
I am gathering all our utility bills, house payments, home owners' insurance, and what we paid for his sitters' time.What about all the time we put in taking care of him?  Any advice at this point would be appreciated.
