concerned caregiver

I have been caring for a 32 yr old man (62 lbs) for 14 years, for the last 10 he has been living with me in my home. On several (4 or 5x) occasions his mother tried to care for him in her home only to keep him for one or two nights and return him to me saying that she was not able to do it. Recently she asked the bank that holds his trust if she could be paid an hourly wage for herself by doing so. For the last two weeks she has taken him home only to bring him back to me with complications (weight loss (4 lbs. in three days) very concentrated urine in his depends,(although I stress the importance of fluid intake), and now I'm starting to see signs of depression when he returns. I don't know how much more I can endure. This man is like my little boy and we have a very strong bond. My family is like his family and he sees them as such. I'm at a loss as what to do. I have an appointment with my dr. because I am becoming physically ill from the stress. Is there anyone suffering from this and are there any suggestions from someone who may be going through the same thing.
