Some years ago I knew my mom was having mental difficulty as she aged - it eventually progressed to the point that I realized she was no longer capable of caring for herself. At this point I was the only sibling in the area and it fell to me to move my mom into my house adn because she could not be left alone I needed time off work to care for her. I used this paid time off to care for her and locate a facility where she could be watched. We eventually moved her into an Alzheimers facility which provided care for her. This process of caring for her and evaluating care facilities required me to use about 3 weeks of time which luckily for me was paid medical leave.
