My mom currently is living by herself but we are thinking about her moving in with us. What should we be concerned about if we chose to move her in?
Okay, my mom wants to give it one more try, of living by herself in her home of 45 years. She is 88, uses a walker. If it doesn't work out, or time goes by and it stops being possible, she may move in with me and my husband.
We have extra room upstairs, but no downstairs bathrooms, and we have stairs, which she cannot do. She would be confined upstairs unless my hub & me carry her down. We might get a motorized stairlift, but my mom isn't real mobile, by nature.
I could give her her meds, food, and she goes to bathroom alone.
Does this all sound ok, or like a catastrophe in the making?
