My 88-year-old mother has mild Parkinsonism. So far, the only symptoms are shuffling of her feet and she tires easily due to the medications she takes. She is otherwise in generally good physical and mental condition. Mom has been living in our home since my stepfather died around early April 2020. I told her she can stay with my husband and I as long as I can take care of her needs. My husband and I both work, so we cannot be with her 24/7. She has a Great Call Smartphone2 and the pendant for emergencies, with fall alert.
Mom is very sweet but can be stubborn sometimes. For example, at one time, early during her stay, I suggested she move near my sister, who is her POA and lives out of state and offered to stay with Mom, until all of the paperwork involving my stepfather's estate and life insurances could be completed. Doing that long-distance with Sis needing Mom's signatures on paperwork and Mom's verbal permission for Sis to talk to the various companies on Mom's behalf was a headache. But Mom said no. So now I wonder how I will get her moved into Assisted Living if she says she won't go.
Mom can afford AL. My sister and I are both authorized signers on Mom's checking accounts. But how would I physically get Mom to move if she refuses to go? I don't know if my sister would be of assistance.
