Mom just completed a stay in the hospital and rehab. She has exercises she needs to do daily and a special no sugar no salt diet. Mom lives with us and we make sure she follows the guidelines.
Mom just seems to want to stop the exercises and eat what she wants. We know that allowed to do this she will either aggravate her conditions and or no longer be able to be cared for at home. A nursing home would be the option since they could then do her bathing and care.
Am I forcing her to take care of herself and being unfair to her by requiring her to follow the Dr and therapist suggestions?
Mom forgets from day to day what they have told her about excercise and diet and the alternative.
What should I do? Continue to now be her parent and make her do what’s needed or let her make the decisions?
