Our mother is 86, lives alone, has numerous health issues. The big issues r diabetes, she takes five insulin shots a day, won't eat properly, she has severe back and shoulder pain, so she sits all day, she has neuropathy causing her right hand to go completely numb at times, her memory is slipping, she has low blood sugars more frequently, when her hand gets numb she can't draw up her insulin. This am she put the needle in the vial, held the vial in her left hand and used her teeth to pull the plunger back. These r just some issues. She goes to FL. With me Dec through March but refuses to move in with me or my sister full-time. I live an hour away, my sister lives five minutes from her and provides meals three time a week and takes her to store and appointments but my sister now has a medical issue she needs to address, I get physical therapy twice a week and I can't just drive to moms often. Now mom needs IV iron every other week x 5, there is no transport in her town and the hospital is 30 minutes away. It would be easier for her to live between us but she refuses and doesn't have money to hire help.
