2. Your emotions and frustration with having conversations with your mother. Lack of support from sibiling
Dealing with these issues is a process and this is what I recommend:
b. Consult with dementia organizations and ask them to help you with care consultants to help you and your mother.
There will be a fee for their time but it will be of value.
c. If you mother is still competent, if she does not have a medical directive and legal power of attorney -- consult with an attorney
promptly. Do not go to search engines to find on-line forms. Have a competent attorney who has knowledge in elder care and
estate planning to help you and your mother.

If this does not work you could consider guardianship and conservatorship. Try to speak to her doctor. The doctor may not tell you anything but you can tell him/her about your mother's behaviour. If the doctor beleives your mother cannot effectively and intelligently manage her affiars and writes a letter to explaining that you would be on your way to being conservator.
I hope you are able to help her.
