Oh, so sorry to hear you are caught in this situation and all alone. Do you have an elder law attorney?  If not, you can search for one at –the national association of elder law attorneys.   You need to get everything in writing– and you need to make that move as soon as possible to get yourself in the best position. You are so wise to be thinking about this now.  Are you in the Chicago area?  A good elder law attorney will help you find the right assisted living situation.

Please feel free to send me an email at if you need more direction.
