My husband is oldest of 5. Their mom has been diagnosed w Alzheimer's & I seem to be the only one (besides her Dr) that wants to be proactive TODAY! They hesitate for a number of reasons, including "Mom" doesn't want help, Mom might not be "that far gone" yet, Mom might create a financial burden to us, Mom might create increase in time required, etc. Her doctor stated (on her recent visit) that she should not be left alone, so sibs agreed to try to visit or call her more often. Hubby & 1 bro has power of attorney, & bro does her $. Sis grocery shops. Neighbors call when she wanders. So, in a way, there are some small "proactive" steps being implemented. I just hate to wait for something bad to happen. Any recommendations for how to get them to get her monitored in some way would be appreciated!
