My 87 year old Mom is coming home from a month stay in rehab for a broken pelvis. She had been living alone in an apartment and had not gotten out in over a year.
She is refusing to pay for assisted living and thinks she can get by with having someone come in a few hours a day.
The staff at the rehab center says she cannot live alone and needs a walker to get around.
Mom's processing is slower, but she refuses to acknowledge or accept what the professionals are saying. Living by herself would be dangerous.
I need some ideas on taking care of myself.
