How do you tell a aunt thats coming for three weeks that she needs to clean up after self, without causing hard feelings. Any suggestions would be helpful

Be completely honest with her before she arrives. Let her know that you appreciate her coming to see your mom, however, you have your hands full looking after her and cannot dedicate time to serving her, making her bed, etc. If your aunt is told ahead of time, it will give her time to think about it and realize that she's been selfish expecting you to do everything for her as well as care for your terminally ill mom. Best of luck!
