Old Folks Homes

So...anyone have experience with coping with an aging family member?

My grandmother has been deteriorating rapidly in the past few months, and it is getting to the point where we are discussing next steps. My mother is disabled, so a lot of the responsibility is falling on me, and over Christmas we began the steps of giving me control of her estate, making me power of attorney, etc. Things are moving way faster than anyone thought they would be, though -- it is becoming clear that she is less capable of caring for herself each day. I'd really appreciate some advice...or just a place to ask questions and get support. Maybe some others who have gone through or who are going through something similar can benefit too.

The Enterprise is my TARDIS.
