Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I wll assist you. Croatia is a member of EU since the 1 July 2013.
If your mother is a Croatian national she does not need a visa or permission to enter the UK and live here.
She may need to register with the UK Border Agency if she intends to work here.
Can you provide any further information? Kind regards AJ
Dear AJ Not quite sure you answered my question because in my e-mail I state that she is 80 years old and has dementia so she will need someone to live with and I am currently unemployed? Can she live with me? It is obvious that she will not work here. Could you please re read my question.

Hi, Thank you. Yes there is no reason she cannot live with you. Do you privately rent or own your own accommodation?
Hi, Thank you. There is no reason you cannot invite her to come and reside in your home permanently. If she is a citizen of an EU country she is entitled to enter the UK and entitled to come and live with you.
You may need to check with your landlord that you can have another person residing in the property.
Did you have a specific concern?
Around her staying with you?
can she get health carre
You may also want to consider obtaining a Lasting Power of Attorney from her when she arrives so you can make financial and medical decisions on her behalf.
She will need to register with a GP, which she can do once she has a permanent address.
She will only be able to obtain health care once she is registered with a GP. Otherwise she will have to bring a European Health Insurance Card with her.
Note if she does not have a European Health Insurance Card, she may be charged until she has proved that she is a permanent resident here and registered with a GP
