What help is available for my sister.
concern about a 70yr old sister,living by her self, driving, working at a daycare yet get lost easily,getting very forgetful .Have daughter living in dayton but not keeping close eye on her.Daughter make appointments for her mother but don't take her or even cancel the appt.(hair appt).Sister have called me several times thinking she was late for work and asking "what day is it", fell asleep sunday evening and woke up thought it was next day .I do not think she should be driving.After not coming to my house for 2 week now cannot remember how to get here.She knows something is wrong and that she cannot remember things yet her children will not except this.They think she just trying to get attention or something when she is constantly telling them I don't remember. One son live in kentucky ,come here often, they argue a lot,he doesn't believe her . Another son live in DC calls everyso often but doesn't come to visit her.Daughter student at Wright state and working at retail store, and I understand is now pregnant.
I no longer have a car so I cannot go see her or get to her in a emergency.After she get off work all she do is sit in front of tv rest of day.no longer have any social activities, afraid to go anywhere because she get lost,cannot drive at night,lose sense of direction,I have had. to redirect her many times,as she made the wrong turn and realize that she was lost. Her daughter had to go find her and redirect her home one night.I had to go to her also and redirect her to her Doctors office, one day.
I feel she need help and don't need to be driving ,afraid she will be in an accident and hurt herself or someone else as she cannot concentrate while driving.I feel very helpless as I cannot do more for her.
She lives in an apartment in Clayton off N.Union rd and I live in dayton near Salem andCambridge ave.
