My 93-year-old neighbor needs help!
I have a 93 year old neighbor who lives alone. She is amazingly healthy, athough her short term memory is beginning to slip. She is on no medication but has not been to a doctor in a long time. Her home is horribly cluttered, dirty and infested with roaches and I see signs of rats. Both of her daughters live out of state and rarely visit. I have been emailing them updates as to how she is doing, but feel like I am crossing boundaries since I am just a neighbor/friend. She still drives, but has quite bad eyesight and it worries me. How can I help set up someone to come in a couple days a week to help her out (she has Medicare). She is a lovely, warm, upbeat woman, albeit stubborn. Please, any suggestions would be much appreciated!
