My mother in law is 83 with the start of dementia. She i living in her own apartment, but calls every day at least 5 - 10 times with problems. She misses her medications, can not operate her own television remote, can not operate her heating or air conditioning, can not write checks properly to pay the bills, and walks to the neighbors house at 6:00 a.m to tell them she is cold.
She throws a fit when ever we mention assisted living. She was just at a doctor's appointment last week and they were very surprised when they learned that she was living alone.
What can be done? She is stressing out my husband. He has to pay people to mow her lawn, check on her, take her grocery shopping, etc.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
