You're right to be concerned about her care.  You might consider contacting a local area agency on aging to request that she be assessed for her needs.  that would be step one.  As for changes in her assets, you might think about that after you make some decisions on her care and where it will occur (in your home or in a memory care facility).  Transfers of her real estate than have a significant impact on the sources of payment for her care so I would strongly recommend that you seek the advice of an estate planning or elder law attorney before you make any changes at all.

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
