Today we took groceries over to my parents house. For the first time I saw my Mom  climb up on a short stool so she could put things in the freezer [refrigerator that has the freezer on top]. She has Dad hold open the freezer door while she rearranges things in there.
I can fully understand why my Mom would prefer to put away the groceries instead of Dad helping her.... Dad doesn't clue into the fact that the newer items go behind the older items so the older items get used first. No wonder she becomes The Flash when we bring in the groceries :)
But standing on a stool? Short one or not, to me that was a high risk for her. Yes, I tried Caregivers but Mom asked them all to leave... [sigh]. Mom is still of clear mind so there isn't much I can do for her. As Dad keeps saying "we can manage"... :P
What risks are you seeing in your own family?
