I am not aware of any personal deductions for these types of expenses, but you may want to check with a tax adviser (such as a CPA). Depending on your mother's financial situation, you may want to have her reimburse you for some expenses. If she is in a position where she may need to "spend down" her assets in order to qualify for Medicaid, then reimbursing you for these expenses may be a good planning technique. You will want to consult a legal adviser to ensure any reimbursements would not jeopardize her eligibility for long-term care benefits.
