Hello all would like some advice. My aunt is 96 widowed with no children but has 3 nieces, myself and my 2 cousins who are sisters. Aunt lives alone and is becoming increasingly frail. After a spell in hospital it was arranged for carers to go in but this ended as she refused to pay for them!
Cousin 1 has shopped weekly for her as me and her other niece worked whilst she did not.
Aunt now needs more input. I have recently retired to look after grand daughter and my elderly mother who is aunts sister. Although she has not said as much Cousin1 has dropped heavy hints that she is not prepared to do anymore.
I feel unable to cope with any more responsibilities but can't see how to deal with the situation without falling out with Cousin1 who can be quite volatile.
Any views please?
