Mom is 78. Lives by herself. House and car are paid for.
Has too many cats. Doesn't clean. Doesn't wash. Sends most of her money on cat food. Won't let us fix anything on her property (there is an extensive list of things falling apart). Thinks my husband is the son of Satan (yay - sarcasm).
She is smart enough to be able to convince somebody verbally that she and everything in her life is FINE. However, if you were to look at her and her situation, that answer is obviously WRONG.
I don't know how to see if she ever signed up for Medicare/Medicaid. Best I can figure is that she is depressed and just doesn't care.
How do you know where to start in all this? Do I just hire a contractor and show up to fix something and risk her calling the cops?
