She's smoked for years, had 2 strokes and will never quit. She lives alone and is determined to do as much as she can. She doesn't have enough strength in her hands to use a lighter, so she hobbles in to the kitchen and turns on the stove and bends down and lights the cigarette. The other option is to give her stick matches. Of course I picture her dropping the lit match on the floor or the chair she sits in with blankets. What are the options when both situations area safety hazard?
She hasn t fallen yet but is not very steady on her feet, crawls up and down the steps on hands and knees. Has a medic alert and wont wear it, says she knows where it is if she needs it. She is a tough one and is pretty much on the ball mentally.
