We (siblings) helped our mother to stay in her own home until her dementia was too much for home carers then she lived with my sister for 18 months until she needed more specialist care then lived with my brother (his wife is a nurse) for 2.5 years when she passed away. I was living out of the country so helped with money and yearly visits to relieve them while I cared for my mother.

I would, but my mom lives almost 2000 miles away and she does NOT want to move and I can't move there until I retire

We kept our mother in her own home with carers until she needed round the clock and then went into our homes.
