I can haz guardianship? →
[More:](I'm asking this here because it's probably more chatfilter than a solid AskMe)
As I've mentioned in various threads at MeFi, my mother has Alzheimer's, and she's getting pretty bad. For various inter-familial reasons, my wife and I are exploring the option of having me declared guardian. I'd like to hear any pros/cons/warnings/etc. from those of you who have experience going down this road. Were there any pitfalls to guardianship? Things you didn't expect? What to watch out for? Really, just any tips or tales you care to relate.
