I live in the SE and after 23 years of trying to persuade my mum (who is now in her late 70's) to move down from the NW, she has finally given in, as she's struggling to get up the stairs in her 4 bedroom house, as well as struggling to take care of it. She can't get down the steps in front of the house and rarely leaves the houses these days. She has no family and no neighbours and no support where she is.
Her Dr is a twit and has told her not to move because she wouldn't be able to cope with the 3 hour drive down! I know it's not going to be an easy journey for her and wondered if anyone has experienced anything similar. She has severe rheumatoid arthritis and has has a few heart attacks over the last few years. However, I think it's a crappy thing for the Dr to say as her quality of life would improve dramatically.
I would really love her to have a better quality of life and be somewhere where she is not stressing about coping and living as she is now.
Has anyone got any so,unions to this, she is now scared to move because of what the Dr has said.
