Hi Claire, It sounds like you are coping with a lot at the moment. (((Hugs))) Unfortunately unhelpful relatives are common and often there is one person doing all the caring with others just interfering. Is your Mum supported by a hospice and is she receiving care visits? She should be funded by CHC...
Sounds like a result, Andrew.
