I'm not sure which topic to put this under?
Recently my mom (83) fell down twice in one weekend - 1st time she sprained her ankle and neighbors in her trailer park helped her -
the 2nd time she called 911 because it was 3 am on her way to the bathroom. She is able to walk with a cane on her sprained ankle.
If she falls she knows to go to the steps so her feet are below her so she can lift herself up by the stair railing. She was able to lift herself up the 1st time but the 2nd time she was too tired trying and called 911. She just had them lift her up back into her lazyboy-she is very overweight and cannot lift herself up from the floor because she has knee problems.
She refuses to come live w. us. She is an hours drive for me each way and I am taking care of my husband that has pancreatic cancer.
I can only make it over to check on her grocery situation, get groceries if she needs them and do cleaning once a week.
I have setup the guest bedroom and also a 38' RV w. slideout , lake view for her to have her own space w. parking for her car as she still drives.
My question is if she calls 911 from her home too many times what happens then?
Also if she ends up in the hospital with a broken hip, and wants to go home with no one at her home there - what will they do?
As I said she refuses to come live with me even though I have done everything I can to be accommodating. She is very stubborn and wants her own space and refuses to move.
