Another way you might want to look at the $300,000 is to consider it yours (along with the obligation to provide for your mother's expenses). Work the $300,000 into your own asset allocation. Maybe set aside 3-4 years of the money your mom will need into a bond portfolio and invest the rest for the longer term.

Just my .02 along with best wishes for your mother,
