Could not find any reference if I can claim the credit on line 304 for my mother who is 84 years old, confined to bed because infirmity and non-resident of Canada . I am supporting her to live in an elders home abroad by paying over 50% of her monthly expenses
I don't believe I qualify for Ontario caregiver amount ( line 5819) since my mother is a non-resident.

Your advice and references to official documentation will be appreciated . Thank you !

You cannot, based on this:

You may also be able to claim the CCC for one or more of the following individuals if they depend on you for support because of a physical or mental impairment:
your or your spouse's or common-law partner's child or grandchild
your or your spouse's or common-law partner's parent, grandparent, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, niece, or nephew (if resident in Canada at any time in the year)
