Mother's medical expenses -Oregon/California

Hi, my mom was in a nursing home (before passing away) in CA from April to November of this year, and I know that her medical expenses are deductible. I live in Oregon though, and I paid for her expenses although we were helped by her income from social security.
So I'm very confused how the taxes should be filled out. I could put the medical expenses on her CA taxes or I could claim them as medical expenses on my OR tax return, but I'm not sure that's correct because even though I paid them there were not MY PERSONAL medical expenses, and then part of it was paid for by her income.

I'm completely unsure how to proceed with this situation because the inter-state question confuses it (medical expenses for the State income tax are handled differently between OR and CA), or even if I should try and claim them for myself, or strictly for my mom. Just typing this gave me a headache. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
