My mother recently broke her kneecap in a fall. After being in a rehab facility for 2 1/2 months she is making good progress. I would like for her to go to assisted living where she lives or come to live at my house 200 miles away. She refused both and went home.
I tried to convince her I need to know she is safe. She states she wants to stay home where she can have her 3 cats.
There are 4 of us siblings and her 70 year old cousin is her power of attorney. One 67 year old sibling is financially cared for by Mom and has lived in Mom's basement for years. She continually tells Mom that we are trying to take away her independence.
Mom was diagnosed paranoid delusional 40 years ago and refused medication or treatment.
How do we get her to agree to a safe environment when she won't let an outsider in her house, or leave the cats and house behind?
