Moving mom from her house to an independent living studio because she shouldn’t live alone and hates living alone, she definitely has some cognitive decline too and shouldn’t be driving.
She is really attached to her 3 piece sofa set. She says she wants nothing but those. Not even TV which she does watch, or dressers or any other furniture. She has a brain lock on them and does not make any sense. Although I have drawn up floor plans and told her if she brings all 3 then there’ll be no floor space at all, she says she would stack them on top of each other.
Moving day is coming soon. We convinced her to stay overnight the day before at my sibling’s house so we can have the movers load stuff and then clean up, while she’ll meet them at the studio.
Then I will only move the love seat and a chair, leave the 3 seaters big sofa behind and tell her it just won’t fit.
I feel it is the right thing to do. She can no longer think logically and cannot comprehend the space is too small.
But I also worry she might have a melt down. To avoid conflict I feel like just do as told and let her have all the sofas even though it makes no sense. In the long run, it’s probably tripping hazard too.
What to do?
