My 90 year old mother may move in with me. We get along great but I know there are going to be a lot of things that will happen that I’m probably not prepared for. If anyone would like to give me some pointers I’d really appreciate it.
A few things...mom can’t walk without help. She uses a walker or wheelchair. About the only things she can do on her own are go to the bathroom & feed herself. I give her a bath, wash & set her hair, prepare her meals, shop, clean, take her to doc appointments, the whole bit. She can’t be left alone either so that’s another consideration as far as me being able to go anywhere. I am 62, widowed (no children) and retired.
Her memory is getting spotty. She forgets a lot but with prompting she can recall things. She knows who everyone is yet. She doesn’t have dementia or Alzheimer’s. Her health is pretty good overall considering her age. She has incontinence (sp ?) and wears Depends.
Those are are pretty much the highlights I think. So, if you’d care to give advice that’d be great.
