I see signs that my mom needs more care. We tried having her live in our home before, but it just didn't work. She wanted our constant company, doesn't have friends and she doesn't drive. She always wanted the grands (or me) to wait on her and wouldn't attempt much on her own. Having her right under our roof gave us no privacy as she doesn't sleep much and I once caught her standing outside me and hubby's bedroom door! We can't afford assisted living. She is in an independant facility now, but I don't think she can last much longer on her own. Just thought maybe one of those new housing concepts of home within a home might work.
