My 96 year old mother is mad at me because she thinks I am trying to take away her cooking privileges. She is a vulnerable adult because she can't see well and has decided to take up cooking again even though she lives in Assisted Living that serves three meals a day.
Nursing staff came to assess her and she ordered them out and threatened to call the police. She left a message on my phone yelling that she never wanted to see me again and that I was a terrible daughter the meanest ever.
I realize that she is upset as she is losing more and more independence as she ages. The doctor has suggested hospice to her but she has not given them an answer. How can I help my mom? Should I give up POA to someone else?
I have been her POA for eleven years. I love my mom but I also want her to safe.
