What will you do with your aging parents?

My parents are older but not old. My mom in particular is running into issues of needing minor surgeries and having a hard time keeping up with her home. I love her so much and want to find a balance of caretaking and maintaining my own life and boundaries. My upbringing was very difficult but I still feel a strong sense of responsibility to her. Anyone with current experience or challenging parents especially respond.

    But I'll probably be too broke so old peoples home.
