How can I get my 83-year-old mother to accept respite care so my husband and I can go out by ourselves sometimes?
Mother has seizures ever so often (fainting type), a bad diabetic on insulin, has problems with dizziness and balance, but feels she doesn't need anyone to stay with her. My husband and I will run to Wal-mart or go get coffee by ourselves about once every two weeks during the day. We never go out by ourselves at night because she doesn't like to be by herself at night. 2 and a half years of this. We've about had it.
