My parents are 87 and live alone. I've managed to wedge in 4hs of care 2x a week. Dad has moderate-advanced dementia, but can still get around, mostly get dressed, etc. Mom is less sharp than she was, and suffers from anxiety. Went to a bunch of assisted living places and got on a waiting list. Unit came up but she will not make the decision to move, despite my brothers and me, as well as our doctors, exhorting her.
Does anyone have any stories you can share about what finally got someone over the edge?
Did I say they live in a house with stairs and the bedrooms and full bath are all upstairs?
