  •  My mother claimed she wouldn't have the $ (0+ / 0-)

    to live on when my father died a few years ago.  That was despite owning 2 houses (without mortgages) in a higher price area and more savings than people half her age would love to have last them through the rest of their lives.  
      In my mom's case it wasn't dementia, it was just her usual sociopathic attempts to manipulate people for attention, and get in some last digs at my father when he could no longer defend himself.
      I wish you well in getting through whatever this is.  Hope you can find some experts on elder care that will give you proper advise on how to take care of your MIL without taking on too much stress yourself.
