I am taking mom back to India in Dec. She has mild/beginning dementia and forgets a lot of things. She has plenty of money and help is available back home. Mom lives in a senior center (which is good only if you are mentally sharp). Some of the seniors living alone there have attendants whom they treat like family and I think this model will be great for mom.
However, mom is terrified someone will steal stuff and I will be glad if they steal because mom has broken, old stuff. Mom has also forgotten that she has all this stuff...she never uses the stuff in her cabinets and I had to throw out a lot of stuff.
So do I listen to mom and NOT hire anyone and wait for a catastrophe to happen? Or do I go ahead and hire an attendant?
I'm on a slow burnout here.....
Thank you so much.
