A doctor, minister and other family members have tried to reason with her, to no avail. Paying for assisted living is not a concern, she has plenty to cover it, and knows it. Mom comes up with every excuse and reason under the sun for not moving. My siblings and I live across the country from Mom, and she has refused all offers over the years to move near one of us. We can't just move her to assisted living without her consent. If we activate her health power of attorney, the assisted living center we have chosen has told me that she would not be considered as a good candidate and she would have to live in their memory care or nursing home facility. Any tips on how to convince Mom to move? She is declining bit by bit and we are worried sick about her living alone.
