My mother lives alone April through December then lives in Florida with me mid December to the end of March. My sister provides meals April through December, I of course as a retired nurse try extensively to have her eat right, drink water, exerciser when in Florida and I encourage the same when back in PA. She usually throws away most of what my sister provides and eats crackers, cheese, lots of bread, cereal and sweets, sweets, sweets. As a results she has very high blood sugars and extremely low blood sugars. She takes long acting and short acting insulin four times a day. She has been diabetic over 50 years. Despite repetitive education about bedtime snacks, she will not eat a lot of times if her blood sugar is high and then crashes with a low blood sugar. Her memory is getting bad but even when she was with me 24/7 fights me regarding education on eating. I am at my wits end with her. We have asked her to move in with us and she fights that. I have POA, but she isn't incompetent yet! I am reconciled she will be found unconscious with a low blood sugar. Any suggestions? She doesn't have funds for a caregiver.
