My mother, about whom I've written before on this forum, is now 93 years old. She lives alone, but I live within 0.1 mile of her house, so I am there virtually EVERY SINGLE DAY. She lives in her own home by choice, and I am happy to accommodate her with any and everything she might need. I prepare her meals nightly, either bringing over items that I've cooked for my husband and myself, or cooking something that I have purchased and prepared specifically for her, according to her appetite. She gets around her house quite well using her cane and her walker, but I KNOW that I need to prepare for the not-too-distant day when she needs more help. We are truly blessed to be in a financial position which will allow her to stay at home, and I know there are many options for her in-home care. I just need guidance on finding what is absolutely best, and ideal, for her. Can anyone provide suggestions? I don't want to wait much longer to make preparations for in-home nursing or some sort of assistance. She is amenable to exploring the possibilities, and knows that I will NEVER.....let me emphasize....EVER, consider a nursing home, unless it is a VERY HIGH END facility with a staff that is professional and caring to the nth degree!! I will vet such a facility 6 ways from Sunday, and ask all the right questions to be certain that it is of the high quality that both my mother and I expect. However, I'd MUCH PREFER an in-home option, no matter how many years we require such care. I'd appreciate input from anyone who has experience with this issue.
