My mom is 93 and has lived with us for the past 12 years. She is still somewhat independent. She lives in the bottom floor of our house, has her own kitchen, bath, bedroom and living room and so far is still taking care of herself with an aide that comes in 3 days a week to bathe her and do some light housework. We clean her bathroom and vacuum and make dinner for her. I take care of all her finances, keep her computer working and take her to all doctor appointments. She has been slowing for the past couple of years and uses a walker all the time now and only goes out with us occasionally and we have a transport wheelchair for those occasions. She worries constantly about what will happen when she can not walk anymore. This has been a daily concern for the past two years. She is very slow but is still mobile and has not fallen. I know that she may not be able to walk sometime in the future but for now, I don't want to worry until I need to. I keep telling her that we will get her a power chair and have the aide come every day. I do have contingency plans. We will do whatever we need to when that time comes but evidently, I am not sufficiently worried and she frets about it constantly. It is beginning to make me nuts.
