My husband & I live together in our own home. We are very happy here, Doctor insists that we look into ass't living and move somewhere by winter. We don't want to move, I have short term memory loss from Alzheimer's and my husband has grade 2 diabetes. He is 80, and I am 75. We get meals on wheels 5 days a week, we have paid help that does the laundry, and cleaning every 2 weeks. She is a certified person and available for more hours. We have a person that cuts the grass and blows the snow. I also have copd and scleroderma. I can take care of myself dressing, washing hair but need help with the shower getting in and out. My husband helps with that. We get along very good. We have been together for about 55 years and married for 53. I pick out my clothes, wash my hair and comb it, and make my bed in the am. My husband does the same and still drives. We go together to the grocery store, great clips for haircuts, Walgreens, Salvation Army for clothes, etc. We don't understand why we should give up our home at this time. Her response is that one of us could fall and end up breaking something. She said if we don't do it on our own the authorities could insist if one of us got disabled and then we might not be able to pick where we want to go. We are actually disabled now anyway. My husband's doctor says he's in good shape and going strong. We both passed our drivers exam in 2013. I could still drive if needed. I have a brother and nephew close, and my husband has a niece close too. All are willing to help some. My brother takes care of the flower garden and bushes so the place looks real nice. I do the checkbook each month and most of the bills come out on auto-pay. I put together a Sunday newsletter that gets sent via email to hundreds of members. I don't know if I forgot anything, but I think that's enough for now. Oh, we have a dog too, a little Rat Terrier that we love, and get loved back. We couldn't part with him. He is part of our family, like a child. We do have a 44 year old son that left many years ago and is in Florida. We haven't heard from him in years. We need help in convincing her that we plan to stay at home for now at least. Thank you for all help and ideas.
