What type of family care is covered under the FMLA act?

I drive my mom to all of her doctor appointments since her stroke and I know that is probably covered. What about driving her to physical and occupational therapy? We also need to make an appointment with an attorney to get her will updated to include a new grandchild. Is this covered? Last thing I want to do is lose my job because I inadvertently broke rules.

I think your first step would be to inform your boss/supervisor or HR what is going on. They may have a copy of the Act posted.
You can search the United States Department of Labor for information on the act. From what I read it is 12 weeks unpaid per year for eligible employees. I do not see anything about individual days off. This might be something to discuss with your employer. It might be like it is when you have a child and you need to take a sick day for your Mom's appointments.
