Taking care of my mom, 92 yrs of age in her own home. Has mobility issues, and occasionally high blood pressure, mood swings, and sometimes hears things that are not there. Have spoken to her primary physician on all of the above issues. He has prescribed medication for high blood pressure but that is all. Nothing has been resolved with hearing sounds, mostly at night and sometimes during the day. He suggested memory test but she refuses to go get tested. Has some difficulty using oven but for the most part can heat things up on top of stove and use the microwave. Have lived in her home ever since she had fallen multiple times four years ago.. Got her on a more healthy diet and making sure she takes her medicine regularly. Problem: She gets extremely angry any time I mention visiting my family and grandchildren who live out of state. Dad died in 2003 and left everything to my stepmother (there was a newer will written which she hid and filed an old one that was more to her benefit, but alas since we couldn't prove it, there was nothing we could do).I usually take four days the most for visits, twice a year on average. In two months, I would like to take a ten day vacation but she threatened to call a lawyer to get me out of the house, if I do go. I suggested getting some home healthcare workers to come in to help with light housekeeping. That is all she really needs as she can wash herself. She does not want to hire anyone to help her. Now this controlling issue has been like this ever since I was a child so I'm used to this behavior. She may or may not call a lawyer. It's just her attempt to manipulate me. Am praying over this. I'm her only living relative outside of my grown children who live in other states. Would welcome your thoughts.
